Mrs Sardina also stays at home

For the first time since 1982 the Burial of the Sardine will not be held

Today should be one of the great days of the Miguelturra Carnival with the Burial of the Sardine, since 1982 it has been interrupted every year.

Organized by the Peña la Cabra, it is the most peculiar and pioneering burial in all our national territory.

In 1982 a group of carnival men, mostly members of the Peña la Cabra, decided to continue with the carnival party, a box with two sticks was the first coffin of our beloved Doña Sardina.

During these 40 years of celebration, widowers and widows, politicians, kings and even the clergy themselves with Pope Kulata at their head, have wanted to pay tribute to Doña Sardina year after year.

This year we are without our peculiar Burial of the Sardine, but we hope to return in 2022 and fill the streets with joy again.
