La Palma Carnival - Canary Islands

End of February

The Carnival on the Canary islands is unique an explosively erotic mixture made up of south American influences local customs and the odd Spanish element, Just what is male, and what is female, is not always clear.

On La Palma, the highlights of these mad times are the Day of the Indians in Santa Cruz on Shrove Monday the election of the Carnival Queen in Los Llanos and also the Burial of the Sardine on the Friday after Ash Wednesday in Santa Cruz and Los llanos and one month later in Los Sauces.
