WHERE: Sitges, Spain
WHEN: from 16 to 22 February 2023
The most beautiful, colorful, tolerant, wild Carnival in Spain.
An event capable of attracting nearly 300,000 individuals every year from every corner of the country.
A Carnival party that, for many, is among the most beautiful in Europe.
It will be for its atmosphere. For the warmth of this city. For the welcome of the inhabitants. Or for the pleasant weather even in February … there is no doubt that the Sitges Carnival is rightfully one of the must-see parties for winter 2023 in Spain.
At the Sitges Carnival (or Carnestoltes, as they call it around here), 7 days of dancing, partying and parades throughout the city await you. And, of course, the large participation of the gay community and LGTB. After all, this is still the most gay-friendly city in Spain.
A Carnival that, just this year, should be celebrated in total normality. And it would be appropriate to say … finally.
In addition to the party, the event will be the right opportunity to admire a truly beautiful city, with a charming historic center and a beautiful, and endless, waterfront. Not to mention the short distance from Barcelona, just 30 minutes by car!
