Alcanar Carnival Carnestoltes
In the municipality the carnival is split between Alcanar town and Les Cases d’Alcanar. One is before the other, so this means that if you go during this time you almost get two for the price of one. Of course the dynamics are a bit different as one is seaside and the other isn’t.
If you would like to know more about the origins of carnival here and what it’s all about, click here on Carnivals in Catalonia.
If you are not familiar with Alcanar or Les Cases d’Alcanar, which is a lovely fishing village for relaxing holidays, which has very good food, then consider checking out our Alcanar Travel Guide
Also, worth a mention, is that both the town of Alcanar and the fishing village of Les Cases d’Alcanar have a good choice of quality restaurants, and we like a number of these. However I would like to mention one in particular, as we did have an exceptional experience there, and I have reviewed it, follow the link to find out more about this great restaurant in Alcanar – Please note that this restaurant has now moved to Peñiscola – which is worth the trip, as it’s a lovely spot also.
