JIMENA The Council has set the dates for Carnival celebrations in the municipality. (Although Carnival is supposed to be a 'beginning-of-Lent' religious thing, 'secular licence' makes sure that it is not all held at the same time everywhere. This applies to the whole of Spain.) The dates for 2012 are as follows: San Martín del Tesorillo: March 2 - 4; San Pablo de Buceite, March 9 -11; Jimena de la Frontera, March 16 to 18. For a 'review' of last year's Carnaval, click here. If you write 'carnaval' into the search widget, top-ish right on the sidebar, you will get a whole lot more.
