Carnival time! Color, laughter, magic, music. Kick up your heels high and hard for tomorrow the inexorable Holy Week will catch up with you and there will then be no running away from penance. Make fun while the bands still play. We propose the following to be the best carnivals: Madrid, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Sitges, Cadiz, Santa Curz de Tenerife
"The carnival in Madrid befits not only the feast before the lenghty and solemn Lent but also a feast that’s celebrated by one of Europe’s liveliest people"
