Looking for information about the beginning of the carnival, it is impossible to know exactly when and where this ancient tradition begins. Some date it to Greece, others to Rome... what we do know is that it was set at the end of February as a ritual between winter and spring.

With the expansion of Christianity is when Carnival begins to be dated before Lent. They were a few days of celebration before beginning the days of fasting and abstinence, where everything was allowed, hence the masks and costumes.

If we talk about carnival throughout the world, the one in Rio de Janeiro or Venice are the best known without leaving behind those of our Spain that although this festival is celebrated throughout the territory, perhaps it is those of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and those of Cádiz that are the More popular.

From the youngest to the not so young, the carnival is one of the most popular parties due to the waste of joy and imagination these days. They are fun parties that we need so much these days.

From La Flamenca de Borgoña we wish you to spend some beautiful days surrounded by family and friends celebrating Carnival as you like in one of the funniest parties of the year.
