Carnival is one of the most ancestral festivities in the world, nowadays it has become a spectacular party in which costumes, masks and music are protagonists.
The origin of this tradition dates back to ancient times, even before Christ, when masked peasants gathered around bonfires asking for fertility for their lands and keeping away evil spirits from their crops.
The tradition arrived to ancient Greece, and later on, Rome celebrated its equivalent.
Today it is celebrated before Christian liturgical season of Lent, during these days the streets are flooded with colors, animated characters, parades, floats, masked characters and lots of entertainment.
