Solsona Carnival

2/2/2013 - 10/2/2013

Sitges is not the only place to celebrate carnival in Catalonia... in fact the longest celebrations take place in Solsona with free events and concerts every night for over a week. The residents of this traditional Catalan town are known as donkey killers owing to their ancient tradition of hanging a donkey from a bell tower... but don't worry these days it's just a stuffed toy that gets it in the neck! There are also colourful parades and giants roaming the streets! If you want to experience carnival in authentic Catalan style this is the place. Camping El Solsones has some special deals this time of year too if you're looking to hire a bungalow for a weekend or longer!
