Spain and Semana Santa

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my family of 4 to Spain and none of us have ever been, however we're fairly well traveled and are pretty well versed in Spanish. We will arrive in Barcelona on Thursday, March 29th and will depart Madrid on Monday, April 9th.

What problems will the Semana Santa pose as far as travel and availability of attractions?

At this point, our itinerary has 4 days/nights in Barcelona. From there we are considering a flight to Seville for a 3 night stay, Granada for another 2 nights, then Madrid for our final 2 nights.

My questions:

Is it too much time in Barcelona even considering a jet lag?
Is the ease and efficiency of a flight to Seville worth the expense of Valencia and the coast?
How about the time in Seville and Granada?
We will be in Madrid for the weekend, Sat-Sun and leaving on Monday morning... What are the recommended sights considering the expected closures due to the Holiday?

Are there any events surrounding the Semana Santa that I should not miss experiencing in the cities we are traveling?

Any other feedback?
