CARNIVAL 2018 IN CANILLO

CARNIVAL 2018 IN CANILLO

Desde 08/02/201812/02/2018

Canillo ( Canillo )


Carnival is held in Canillo on the weekend that falls before Shrove Monday, on February 12.


In Canillo, Carnival is synonymous with harlequins, the stars of the parade held after the ‘hanging’, a traditional event in which the Carnival King is hanged. The harlequins—young boys and girls from the parish—are responsible for livening up all Carnival festivities with their presence.
Traditionally, harlequins were also the protagonists of this celebration in Encamp and Escaldes-Engordany. It used to be only men who dressed up.

The Canillo harlequin costumes were originally made using old two-piece pyjama sets, preferably in light colours, with colourful flowers and cuttings sewn on, and bells tied to the harlequins’ ankles. This tradition has survived to this day, and for many families the costumes passed down from generation to generation are a source of pride. The harlequins are also the inspiration for the parish’s pair of gegants or giants, towering figures measuring over three metres tall that have been part of the celebrations since 2012.
