Barcelona at Easter and the Sarlat Saturday market

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip to Barcelona and the Dordogne, and would like to get some more specifics so we can determine the best day to leave LA.

We'd like to spend 4 or 5 nights in Barcelona, fly to Toulouse and rent a car, then drive to the Dordogne, probably staying around Sarlat (according to the bahn website - checking a December date - the train connection takes 6-7 hours, so I think a Vueling flight would be preferable). In April, Vueling only flies Thurs/Sun/Mon/Tues to Toulouse. I've read a lot about the Sarlat Saturday market and am not sure if it's so special that we should try to get there.

We'd need to arrive in Barcelona on the Saturday before Easter to depart on Thursday for Sarlat. In Barcelona we're most interested in the Gaudi sites, Catalan museum, and maybe a side trip to either Montserrat or Figueres.

What's closed over the Easter holidays (Easter is April 20, 2014)? I understand that Easter Monday is a holiday. The websites say most museums are usually closed on Mondays, but then say open on holidays with reduced hours...not sure how that translates out (do they open on a holiday Monday?). Will we regret arriving on Saturday, what's exciting or closed on Sunday, etc - these are my questions.

Many thanks for any assistance!
