The Sitges Carnival is considered one of the best carnivals in Spain and has more than 100 years of history. In addition, the carnival is popular with the gay community due to the fact that Sitges is the gay capital of Europe.
Sitges is a beautiful coastal town very close to Barcelona. Remember that Aerobús connects Barcelona Airport with the city center in just 35 minutes, every day of the year.
The carnival is packed with events and activities. The most popular are the “Libertinaje” Parade and the Extermination Parade. Both are large events that attract thousands of spectators, with more than 50 floats and live music.
The children also have their own parade. From Carnival Sunday to Tuesday, different parades are held in the afternoon in the main streets of the city.
There are also drag shows, contests, concerts, fireworks, cultural events, traditional dances and much more.
