Barcelona During Holy Week?

Jump to last reply

We have booked a trip to Barcelona and Costa Brava at the beginning of April 2012. Staying at a hotel in Figueres, with car, for three days, then moving to an apartment in L'Eixample, without car, for another week. Since it turns out that this time spans Holy Week (Setmana Santa), I wonder whether the notable attractions of Barcelona will still be accessible. Of course the churches will celebrate the sacred liturgies of these days, but will they be open to sightseers at other times as well?

The guidebooks indicate that Good Friday and Easter Monday are holidays. Do any museums, galleries, monuments, forts, etc., close in observance of any of these days? How about cafes, bars, restaurants, markets?

We'll be much obliged to anyone willing to share some Barcelona savvy and help us put together a good plan for this time.

Muchas gracias! / Moltes gracies!
