The updated February Events Diary is now on the website.

You'll see that everything this month revolves around the Carnival, which takes us up to Lent.

The Carnival returned with a bang after being banned by the Franco dictatorship. Whilst Tossa has its fair share of events like fancy dress races, balls and the big procession on the 26th, if you will be there and you feel like venturing out of Tossa, why not visit Platja d'Aro and Palamós to witness the amazing processions of floats? They are said to be some of the biggest in Spain.

The most bizarre part of the Carnival has to be the 'burial of the sardine' on 1st March, signifying the end of winter.

Has anyone witnessed the 'Burial of the Sardine'? Do you have any photos? Or any experience/photos of the Carnival celebrations in general? They would make a great addition to the photo movies and would be great for a planned future newsletter feature on Tossa's fiestas.
