It is a time when all the players dress up and get the medieval spirit, I love the magic, the smell so characteristic to spices, incense, etc.. I love music and people constantly dancing as before, since I can remember I worked there and this year I`ll debut just as a visitor!

People appear here! it`s worth the 2 euros per day or 4 euros per week for the purchase of the bracelet.
