Tourism in Casteldaccia
Carnival has always represented one of the most famous and awaited festivals of the small town.
This manifestation starts preparations after Christmas' Holiday and ends at midnight of the day before Ash Wednesday.
During it inhabitants decorate all of their houses, stores and so on, with festoons, lights, masks and spend days dancing every sort of dance and taking part to numerous ritual meetings.
Typical figure of this Carnival has always been that of "bastunieri", that is who brought all of his masks round in the houses and in the stores and ask for dancing the dance they want and thanking for having received hospitality.
Very characteristic are besides allegorical parades of carts which compete with each other, every year, for winning the prize of the best cart of the year.
