In Tenerife every year enjoyment and laughter are guaranteed thanks to the celebration of the Carnival.

There is a special day in the schedule of your schedule in which there is a very particular reason to go out to the street.

This year will be held on the first Wednesday of March, at 9:00 pm at the Juan Pablo II location of the capital of Tenerife.

After a month full of costumes, parties, lights, glitter, music and good atmosphere, comes the day of the Burial of the Sardine, in spanish named as “El Entierro de La Sardina”. 

This is a typical ceremony of the dates that announces the end of the Carnival with parades of a more funeral style, but with a waste of laughter, jokes, nice jokes and a thousand other things.

Although it is a combination that may sound a bit strange, it turns out to be the perfect mix to have a great time.

The parades during the Burial of the Sardine are a parody of a funeral procession that is traditionally celebrated on Ash Wednesday, ending the journey with the sardine burning as a representative figure of the Carnival.

The carnival parties are then dismissed with this event and the beginning of Holy Week begins.

The Burial of the Sardine is also a symbolic way of burying the past along with errors, reborn clean, with more strength and experience.

If something distinguishes the island of Tenerife in these dates is precisely the cheerful and colorful atmosphere that the carnival paints in its streets. It is a show of music, smiles, humor, glitter and fun where people of all ages participate with costumes, dances, murgas and much more.

The Carnivals of Tenerife are recognized in the world as one of the best. Every year, a base theme of inspiration is chosen around which the parties, the poster, the colors, the costumes, etc. will turn out. This year 2017 has been selected The Caribbean as a star theme.

Of all the parties, this is a gala where the red carpet is replaced by a frost of multiple colors and the costumes become disguises increasingly original and graceful. It is a magnificent waste of imagination that residents and tourists live with intensity.

If you still do not have your costume, go running to get one, put on your mask and take to the streets to live the humor and the joy you breathe!

Let yourself be enveloped by the charm of Tenerife, multiplied by the magic of its colorful and spectacular parties.

Remember that at our reception you can find information on schedules, transportation and everything you need to know to enjoy these days and enjoy it to the fullest.
