Easter is a great time to come to Barcelona as spring has begun, the trees are in blossom and there are many outdoor processions and celebrations taking place.
Many Barcelonans go to the countryside to take advantage of the long weekend. The combination of quieter streets, Easter festivities and pleasant weather makes this one of the best times of the year to visit Barcelona.
During festival days a lot of of shops and museums are closed, especially on Good Friday and Palm Sunday. Restaurants have their doors open as many families celebrate this religious occasion by going out for a meal together. Don’t forget to try the delicious Mona de Pascua cake.
