3 unmissable plans for Easter in Barcelona

By | 16 March, 2023 | 0 comments

There aren’t many cities in Spain that do Easter on quite the same scale as Barcelona. Alongside all the tourist attractions and sightseeing opportunities typical of Spain’s coastal cities, Barcelona has some added benefits, points of interest and landmarks that make it the ultimate destination, both for a typical weekend getaway and for those looking to explore a little more off the beaten track. And on festive weekends like Easter, you’ll also be able to enjoy plenty of wonderful hotel accommodation offers in Barcelona of the highest quality. So, are you ready to discover some unmissable things to see and do in Barcelona this Easter?

Semana Santa en Barcelona 2020

 L’Hospitalet celebrates Easter

If there’s one image of Easter – or Holy Week – in Spain, particularly the image people from overseas may have in mind, you’ll find it in L’Hospitalet, where all the tradition, passion and Spanish flair will be on full display, both in terms of authentic religious observance, as well as the more artistic displays with definitely a few more “frills”…

For over thirty years now, the Andalusian community in L’Hospitalet has celebrated Easter in Barcelona in traditional style, bringing authentic flamenco to the city and giving visitors an experience they’re not likely to forget.

A museum for seeing Picasso in his purest form

The Museu Picasso (15-23 Carrer Montcada) should be an unmissable stop on everyone’s itinerary in Barcelona this Easter, where you’ll get the opportunity to learn about the immortal artist from Malaga’s early years, from his initial training to his early artistic development. Exploring 4,251 works of art that make up the permanent exhibition, you’ll be able to appreciate first-hand the close relationship Picasso had with Barcelona. A bond that was forged in his youth and remained solid until the day he died.

The museum houses virtually all of his work, exhaustively cataloged from his early days as an artist to his blue period, including paintings, drawings, and prints, as well as the well-known series Las Meninas from 1957. We recommend planning your visit in advance and contacting the museum to answer any questions you may have before arriving in Barcelona, as well as to arrange for a guided tour if desired.

Easter in Barcelona: The Inevitable Visit to the Sagrada Familia

It would be practically a “sin” to visit Barcelona during Easter and not admire one of its most characteristic attractions/constructions. The Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s best-known unfinished work, is one of the most emblematic monuments of Barcelona—if not the most. The very slow progress of the work, due to Gaudi’s death, the damage suffered during the Spanish Civil War to the only plaster model, and the complexity of the plans, has delayed its completion well into the 21st century, despite the fact that construction began in 1882.

This slow and laborious posthumous “birth” process does not detract, however, from the character, beauty, and attractiveness of the religious building, which is an icon of Barcelona recognized worldwide. Given the dates of the religious festival, however, we advise you to find out about visiting hours and possible temporary restrictions before arriving in the Catalan capital.
