The Spanish love a party so it’s not surprising that the lead up to Lent is a festive time in Barcelona. Carnaval (Carnival) literally means ‘farewell to meat’, and it’s a time of feasting in preparation for the 40-day fast period of Lent. This year Carnaval kicks off on February 16th with Dirty Thursday (Jueves Ladero or Dijous Gras) – let the eating begin!
