Semana Santa – Easter Holidays in Barcelona

Finally spring arrives!

Spring has finally arrived in Spain and easter is coming closer and closer. The weather is great (sun and up to 18 degrees around midday), the trees are showing proudly their shining oranges and the terraces in front of bars and cafés fill up with locals and travellers from all over the world.
