During wintertime, the Pyrenees follow the beat of the spirit of Carnival. This season of disarray, of a “world up-side-down,” is a reflection of our primitive notions of celebration, bound up as they are in symbolic thought and in the vital rhythms of nature. The Masked Pyrenees travels to explore the Carnival rituals that have survived in many mountain villages to this day. It is a journey through various valleys in Aragon, Navarre, Andorra, the French Basque Country, and the Roussillon region of the Eastern French Pyrenees.
