Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday begins Easter week and this year will be the 25th of March. It is the day commemorating the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. As a tradition (not only in Barcelona) the godmothers give their godchildren the palm and this day family gathers to bless the palm in the neighborhood church.
In Rambla Catalunya, you will be able to see how the palms are made in some artesans shops. The Barcelona Century is a hotel near the Rambla de Catalunya, so we recommend that you go there for a pleasant walk.
If you want to see how the palm is blessed, some of the most emblematic places to bless are the Cathedral of Barcelona or La Sagrada Familia. Check here the agenda
Easter Week and Processions
Barcelona is not one characterized by being a city with great tradition in terms of processions but there are some that are very popular and rooted in time. It is the example of «El Paso de la Borriquita» which is celebrated in Ciutat Vella on Palm Sunday.
Easter time in Barcelona would not be the same without La Mona de Pascua
Perhaps the most special day for children is Monday after or what is called colloquially, the Day of the Mona (last day of Easter week). It is the day when the family gathers around the table to taste one of the most special sweets of this holiday, the Mona de Pascua, which is a cake with a big chocolate egg/figure/character…
Chefs use their imagination and bring to life creative and fun chocolate figures that children love. When you arrive in Barcelona, look carefully at the shop windows of the bakeries, you will surely see a lot of Chocolate figures/Monas. More than one will surprise you!
