“Xurigué” Carnival


Why is it called “Xurigué”? The fantasy appearance of this flying fish, with its elongated body covered in small, strong and rugged scales and its big round eyes, just like the most gorgeous of the costumes, evokes the most typically Calafell and Mediterranean carnival spirit. It is a true symbol of contradiction, beautiful in bright colours and packed with a thousand surprising and exciting mysteries, just like our carnival.
