Welcome to Solsona

The high point of Solsona's Carnaval used to be the hoisting of a donkey by its neck up the bell tower, hence the nickname matarucs (donkey killers) for local people. The tradition remains, although nowadays the donkey is a water-spraying fake. Beyond the donkey-dangling, Solsona's festivities are renowned for their impressive gegants (giants), oversized human models that assume pride of place.
