Barcelona celebrates carnival just before the fasting period of Lent that leads up to Easter. As Spain predominantly remains in the grip of Catholicism, the Easter period is an important time of the year for many people. Carnival is a last day of decadence before the 40 days abstinence and piety that lead to the Easter festival. Numerous separate celebrations are held on the city’s streets, and in days past a large street parade called Gran Rua de Carnaval would travel through the city.
You can take pleasure in witnessing a procession of floats, costumes and dancers make their way through Barcelona’s streets. Many markets also hold tortilla-making competitions at this time, as food plays a prominent role in the celebrations.
