Spain is a Catholic country, this religion goes hand in hand with Carnival. And yes, there is a great and wild Carnival Party near Barcelona, Sitges and I can easily say it is a carnival you will never forget!

Every year lots of  people travel to Sitges, near Barcelona to experience the biggest and wildest Carnival of Catalunya. Sitges, also known as ‘little Ibiza’ is a popular vacatiob destination for the gay and alternative community. Sitges is stationed just outside Barcelona. Travelling to it is easy, 30 minutes by train from the Sants or plaza Catalunya train station.

Besides the ‘normal’ carnival celebrators the Sitges Carnival also attracts visitors that are not so ‘normal’. Think of gays, transvestites, alternatives and everything between. These visitors make the carnival one that you don’t forget. The Sitges Carnival 2013 lasts 10 days it starts on Sunday the 3rd February and end at Wednesday the 13th of February.
