The carnival party, as in the great majority of Mediterranean localities, it is immersed in the roots of Barcelona and we find documents that date from the beginning of the 14th century where the authorities tried to prohibit acts such as the launch of oranges or tried in some way to regulate the use of More expensive.

Undoubtedly, carnivals have always been an identity mark of the people where individual freedoms become collective actions, something that the powerful have always seen with bad eyes.

Carnival of Barcelona (c) La Meva Barcelona

He said gras -wheels lardero- falls on February 8 and is the big day of the week. The king of Carnivals will make his triumphal entry with his ambassadors in the Plaza de Sant Jaume at 17:30 with a parade along the Gothic quarter with all his troops that includes giants and characters rooted in the carnival tradition.
