“Compadres” Feast | Santana February, 16th, 18th,19th and 23rd

The ‘Festa dos Compadres’ marks the opening of the Carnival season in Madeira, a tradition going back to more than 50 years, which is celebrated with great enthusiasm in Santana. This is an event known for its originality, marked by its gigantic gures who roam the streets of this quiet town located on the north of the Madeira island, in a parade full of humour, lots of colour and merriment.
