Joaldunaks, some to call them ”Zanpantzar”, take part on the Carnival between of the Pyrenees villages of Ituren and Zubieta, northern Spain, Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015. In one of the most ancient carnivals in Europe, dating from before the Roman empire, companies of Joaldunak (cowbells) involving the residents of two towns, Ituren and Zubieta, parade the streets costumed in sandals, lace petticoats, sheepskins around the waist and shoulders, coloured neckerchiefs, conical caps with ribbons and a hyssop of horsehair in their right hands and cowbells hung across their lower back.
