Ladies and Gentlemen... Carnival is back, and at its most participatory!  The Arribo, the Saraus, the Passacaglias, the Taronjada, the Burial of the Sardine... Welcome to the kingdom of the Carnival King. 
Barcelona Carnival, from February 23rd to March1st, will go back to its origins and try to achieve its ancient splendor again. The historical Carnestoltes of 16th and 17th Centuries had its ups and downs through time, but now the city wants a party where citizen, associations, schools and markets’ involvement increases.

The "arribo", Thursday 23rd at 5.45pm
At 6pm, at Palau de la Virreina, the parade of Seven Ambassadors.
From 6pm at plaça de Sant Jaume: Carnival fun and the arrival of King Carnastoltes, the battle of oranges and a Carnival dance.
