Toro Carnival

The carnival in the village of Torohas been declared of touristic interest in Castilla y León. Right from the start on the Friday night until the Burial of the Sardine , the sound of the street bands can be heard singing criticisms of current politics and society.

The traditional wedding, on the main Sunday , is a unique custom not to be seen anywhere else in Spain. The men and women of the town dress up in typical costumes to simulate the marriage between Don Carnal and Doña Cuaresma.

On Carnival Tuesday there is an impressive parade full of lights and colours, a spectacular show that passes through the streets of the village. On the Ash Wednesday takes places the comic funeral procession, the Burial of the Sardine, and a great feast of sardines with which to bid farewell to Don Carnal until the following year.
