Burial of the Sardine

  • Things to do

Time Out says

The 'Entierro de la Sardina' (Burial of the Sardine) puts the final point on the Carnival celebrations on Wednesday 18, when the city dresses in mourning clothes to bid a final farewell to one of its favourite holidays. The Burial of the Sardine (accompanied by mourners, gravediggers and all kinds of funeral ornaments) marks the return of the costumes to the closets for another year. Besides the transporting of the symbolic deceased fish, there will also be one last parade. You'll never see a funeral procession so full of joy and colour. The route starts at the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida at 6pm and ends at the Fuente de los Pajaritos in Plaza de las Moreras.
