Carnival

Carnival

The most relevant festival of Villar is the Carnival. This takes place during the weekend before Lent. On the night of the Friday there is a street musicians competition (Murgas), satirical and amusing criticism of things that happened during the year. Saturday is the most important day, when a colourful costume parade is held in the afternoon, the burning of the "Chinchoso" (a doll representing the most beloved personage) and that night the funeral of the "Morca" preceded by a procession of torches. Bands play all weekend long. Official web: www.carnavalesdevillar.com
