Carnival of Cádiz

One of the most famous Carnivals in all of Spain is celebrated in this Andalusian city. It is a special occasion to put aside everyday clothes and take the personality of other characters. One of the most anticipated events is the competition of "chirigotas", groups singing humorous songs and "comparsas", groups of friends in costumes who gather to sing songs of social criticism.

In regards to typical Cadiz gastronomy, one cannot step into this city without tasting its seafood. It is typical to see families and groups of friends sitting in bars and terraces enjoying sardines, mussels or squid accompanied with a cold beer.
