Discover the most famous festival of the Canary Islands, the Carnival. Stay at one of the Hoteles Elba and enjoy this festival.
Music, colour and amazing costumes. The great Carnival festival is fast-approaching! To discover its origin one must go much further back in time, given that it is an ancient tradition. To the extent that it is unknown exactly when and why it began to be celebrated, although everything points to a Christianisation of certain pagan festivals held in honour of the gods.
More specifically, the ‘carnival’ comes from the Italian word ‘carnevale’, which takes two Latin terms ‘carne’(meat) and ‘levare’ (remove), referring to the tradition of not eating meat during Lent. During the three days prior to the commencement of Lent, practically all excesses were permitted, which is why many persons started using masks to maintain their anonymity. Over time, the Carnival has become the festival that we know today.
