Carnival, Cadiz: 17 reviews and 18 photos
On the first Sunday of Carnaval you can go and see the choirs (Coros) in Plaza de las Flores (officially Plaza Topete) by the market. This is held in the morning and is more of a family affair though it doesn't stop people drinking Moscatel
In fact Carnaval isn't only a night thing but takes place during the day as most people are on holiday if they work in Cadiz Capital.
During the day and at night you can also see the 'illegal' street Chirigotas which do not take part in the competition in the Falla. These are formed by groups of friends and are worth seeing too. They tend to be highly satirical and sing about the woes and passions of Cadiz.
You can see them station all over the old centre. In fact they tour around the town stopping in the squares and streets to entertain the public.
In the photo along side you can see my Friend Rafa's Chirigota dressed as the mayoress of Cadiz (Teofila).
