Carnival Recommendations for Sitges and Vilanova i la Geltrú (Garraf)
February 7-13 is the Carnival Week 2013 and a time when most towns in the cava and wine region Penedès have some local events and traditions, but – like every year -, the two neighbour towns Sitges and Vilanova i la Geltrú compete in a totally separate league – the first for its international flavour and fame, the second for maintaining a traditional and uniquely Catalan format.
In this week’s video I make recommendations on which events I would suggest that you check out, but since - admittedly -, it is much too long I can sum it up even further: Do not miss the comparses and their Sunday candy wars in Vilanova i la Geltrú and make sure to see one (not both) of Sitges’ big carnival parades, Rua de la Disbauxa and Rua de l’Extermini.
At Discover Penedès you will find translations of the official carnival programs for Sitges (in English and Swedish) and Vilanova i la Geltrú (English and Swedish), but also for Calafell (English) and Vilafranca del Penedès (English).
Discover Penedès and remember that during the carnival everything is OK – Per carnaval tot s’hi val!
