CARNIVAL TIME IN NAVARRE

In Navarre the melancholy of winter is drowned out by the hullabaloo and explosion of colour that is Carnival, with the entire region overflowing with rituals over these festivities.

Witches, bears, phantoms in straw-filled sacks, coalmen, giants and bandits with sticks flood the streets in many villages, reviving some of their most ancestral dances and magical rituals. Magic, colour and tradition come together to offer visitors the unique opportunity of discovering the most deep-rooted customs of rural Navarrese villages.

Enjoy the chance to mingle among the crowds and marvel at some authentic carnival festivities.
