Barcelona is one of the ideal destinations to spend Holy Week. With the arrival of spring, good weather and rising temperatures, the city looks beautiful and the streets are less crowded than at other times of the year. You must bear in mind that the holidays in Catalonia are not the same as in the rest of the autonomous communities of the country. Holy Thursday is not a holiday, while Easter Monday is.
Barcelona is not a city that today stands out especially for liturgical celebrations or processions, famous during the days of Holy Week in other regions of the country. Formerly, each neighborhood had its own procession but over time these customs have been lost. Even so, during the last few years some festivities linked to Holy Week have resurfaced, such as the Burreta procession that takes place on Palm Sunday in the Raval neighborhood. However, in Barcelona it is difficult to get bored and, either for the same Holy Week or for the arrival of spring, the city offers a varied repertoire of activities, concerts and parties that adults and children can enjoy.
Habitually Easter comes with the explosion of colors that spring offers and in this 2019 we are lucky. In the Poble Espanyol we expect from April 19 to 22 the fourth edition of De Flor en Flor 2019, the Festival of Flowers and Gardens of Barcelona. Throughout this emblematic site where every town in Spain is represented we can make a nice walk surrounded by the best aromas and colors as well as a huge floral carpet and several exhibitions of exotic plants and flowers.
In Barcelona it is celebrated with special interest the gastronomy in Easter, where in addition to the classic chocolate eggs, Catalonia has its star dessert: The Mona de Pascua. It is a traditional Easter cake decorated with chocolate eggs, chicks and figures of well-known children’s movie characters or soccer players. By tradition, sponsors give the monkey to their godchildren, but everyone can buy one.
