Carnival 2018 in ordino

The Carnival events and activities in Ordino will take place on just day, Shrove Monday (12 February). On that day, the smugglers will make their comeback to once again claim centre stage. This performance involves several groups and organisations from the parish, such as the Valls del Nord dance troupe, the Casamanya choir and the Ordino Art Group, in addition to collaboration from the people in the town. The plot revolves around the character of the smuggler, a figure with deep ties to Pyrenean culture. The action begins with the soldiers, who are on their rounds, coming across a group of smugglers. To see how it turns out... come to Plaça Major in Ordino at midday on Shrove Monday.
