Trial in the depths of the Sea
"As announced on the radio
in the depths of the sea
a great event has taken place
about which much has been said."


Every year, the "Trial in the depths of the sea" starts off with these verses. This festivity has made our Carnival the important event it is today.

It is hard to imagine that a song by "Los parrandistas" composed back in 1934 could give rise to such an important symbols of our Carnival.

In 1981 what is known today as the "Trial in the depths of the sea" was staged for the first time, thanks to the will and involvement of the people of Santoņa. Twenty-five years later, the tradition that has led us to grant the Carnival the title of "Festivity of National Interest to Tourist"was inaugurated.
