Carnival – Madrid -From 18th February to 25th February

The highlight is a curious tradition called 'The Burial of the Sardine', in which participants, dressed in black cloaks and hats, proceed through the streets with a coffin containing an effigy of a dead sardine.

Many bars line the route to the final destination – the 18th-century hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida.
