CARNIVAL OF ORDINO 2017

CARNIVAL OF ORDINO 2017

The  27/02/2017

Ordino ( Ordino )


The Carnival of Ordino is back this year with a performance of the Smugglers, with help from the whole town. 


The Carnival celebrations in Ordino all take place in one single day: Carnival Monday on 27 February. This year the highlight of the show will be the return of the “Smugglers”. This community performance, which was last put on in 1992, involves several groups and organisations in the parish, such as the Valls del Nord troupe, the Casamanya choir and the Art Group of Ordino, as well as cooperation from the town’s inhabitants. The plot revolves around the figure of the smuggler, a character that’s deeply tied to Pyrenean culture. The action begins with the soldiers coming across a group of smugglers... Find out the ending and come to Plaça Major in Ordino, midday on Carnival Monday.
