The month of April is a synonym of celebrations for a great part of Spain’s population. In Barcelona, much like in many other communities, during the middle of this month 8 days of activities and traditional fiestas are celebrated which are deep rooted in the catholic faith, forming part of the local culture and which awaken a special interest amongst a foreign community who visit the city during these dates: Easter week. At Well and Come, boutique hotel in Barcelona, we want to tell you about what celebrations will be going on in April and the advantages which you could enjoy if you reserve your room at our hotel directly through our website. We will be giving you all of the details in this blog article.
Your stay at our boutique hotel in Barcelona during the month of April
Easter week begins on the 14th of April and goes on until the 20th of April. During these days the emotion and the faith of the people is really felt in the streets, providing a unique and special environment. The spring weather and the quieter streets make Barcelona the ideal destination for your Easter holidays, which is why, whether you’re interested in taking part in some of the acts or if you want to make the most of the time and explore the city during this period, it is a good time to do it. To visit its incredible churches and cathedral is especially unique during this time of devotion.
The attraction which draws in the most international tourists during this time is the large number of processions during Easter and the exquisite gastronomy which seduces even the most refined palates. The first procession on the programme is the “El Paso de la Borriquita” and is held on Palm Sunday (14th of April) in the Ciutat Vella, in commemoration of the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem riding on a donkey. Following this initiating celebration there is a series of parades through the busiest streets of Barcelona, with stellar moments like the procession of the Virgen de la Macarena, which is celebrated on Good Friday (19th of April). At our boutique hotel in Barcelona we want to pinpoint exactly what this spectacle has to offer, whether you consider yourself to be religious or not it is an event which you must not miss during this time of year.
Gastronomy during Easter
The gastronomy on offer during Easter is another great attraction in Barcelona. The food during these dates is centred on the characteristic local buñuelos, the traditional torrijas, the roscas de Pascua, the pestiños and the icing on the cake: the Monas de Pascua, these sweet treats catch the eyes of the old and young, centred on creative pastries and chocolate eggs. A sugary delight that draws in the masses to many bakeries in Barcelona. At Well and Come, boutique hotel in Barcelona, we can suggest various emblematic establishments where you can savour the Monas de Pascua. You only have to ask!
