Start your engines for Carnival 2019!

Finally! Finally we can say that there’s less than a week left for the anticipated Sitges carnival to start, and this year thanks to its dates we’ll be able to enjoy the party without going through any cold, also these days we’ve had an amazing sunny weather with spectacular temperatures above 20 ºC.

It will be held between February 28th and March 6th, being Sunday 3rd and Tuesday 5th the most “important” days since they are the days in which the “ruas” are celebrated, both for children and adults, and as each year it will be a party of stunning costumes, feathers, music and good vibes that you can’t miss.
