Nerja Carnival 2018

Latest Whats On Monday 9th of February 2015

Nerja Carnival 2014Nerja Carnival takes place every year in the week before the start of Lent, which itself is the run up to Easter. The finalé of the Carnival is the ‘Entierro Del Bogueron’ or the Burial of the Sardine – in this bizarre and macabre event, a giant sardine is paraded through the streets of the town before being blown up at Calahonda Beach. This symbolises the fasting that many Christians undertake during Lent.

Nerja Carnival itself is one of the most entertaining festivals of the year, with four days of partying and extravagance, in preparation for the self-denial of the Lent period.
