goldren sunThe Old Town was alive for Carnival last night – with a parade of more than 1,500 people. Unusually for Spain, it started bang on time at 9:30pm, with 78 groups and a dozen individuals dressed in a variety of eye-catching outfits, marching down the length of the Avenida Ruzafa and finishing at the town hall square.

There were cash prizes for the best judged group – winning €1,000 and individual awarded €300. The roadside was lined with cheering spectators and the requisite loudspeakers pumped out music that even made the pavements vibrate!
