Few questions about Good Friday and Saturday in Barcelona
 
1. What tourist sites / museums will be closed on Good Friday and following Saturday? Could Gaudi park be closed?
2. Is there any procession in Barcelona on Good Friday which we should see?
3. I'm planning to go to Figueras and Girona on Thursday before Good Friday. Could that be a problem?
4. bus touristic: can we use 2 days, but not consecutive

Thanks,
Mariya

The two day ticket for the bus turistic is for consecutive days only.

There is a procession in Girona on Good Friday.

Thanks for the info. Should we go to Figueras and Girona on Good Friday to see the procession? Would Dali museum be closed on that Friday? Is there anything happens in Barcelona on Good Friday (procession, etc)?
Thanks,
Mariya

The procession in Girona starts at 8 pm and lasts approx. 2 hours. The "manaies"
- men dressed as Roman soldiers are one of the highlights.

I do not think there is a procession in Figueras on Good Friday (there is one on Easter Sunday though).
The Dali Museum should be open but I would check first from you hotel in Barcelona.

There is a big market in Figueras on Thursday apart from the usual fruit and veg. one

Thanks a lot for the info. I guess there is no procession in Barcelona on Good Friday to see?
