Carnival, Cadiz: 17 reviews and 18 photos


The Competition of music groups in the theatre El Gran Falla usually takes place in February. If you are interested in going then be prepared not to understand anything at all even if you think you speak Spanish. Many Spanish people from outside of Cadiz even have difficulty understanding not only as it is sung in the local dialect but because they talk about things very specific to Cadiz.

It lasts 20 days and over 100 groups take part. The final is always celebrated the Thursday before Samana Santa (Holy Week). You can buy tickets from the theatre a few days before it begins. You can usually find people who have bought tickets selling them on the internet. Be cafeful if you do it this way though.
