Discover the Carnivals of Ituren and Zubieta in Navarre
Kingdon of Navarre Land of Diversity and great contrasts. We can appreciate one of these contrasts in the various rural carnivals that are held in different locations in the north of the community.
Every year, on Monday and Tuesday after the last Sunday of the month of January, carnivals of an atavistic nature related to the land, livelihoods such as livestock or agriculture and customs of the people are held in the north of Navarra.
In the area known as Malerreka or Alto Bidasoa the first known carnivals of Navarra are celebrated, specifically in the townsof Ituren and Zubieta.
Vivid colors, ancestral dances, and rites of a magical nature differentiate these carnivals from those in the south of the community, perhaps of a more urban and contemporary nature.
The different characters stand out as; the Bear or Hartza, the beasts or the rams but without any doubt the main characters are the Joaldunak that with their characteristic costume and their vibrant cowbells make it a unique festival.
We have created an experience that will allow you to know first hand all the details of this curious carnival, and as a highlight of this experience you can meet its true protagonists (Joaldunak), participating with them at lunch before their parade.
