Holy Week

Holy Week

During the Holy Week - or Semana Santa - Easter celebrations literally pile up in Barcelona: from March 24 to April 1 processions, services and religious ceremonies take place one after the other in all major Spanish cities, starting on Palm Sunday - or Domingo de Ramos - and continuing in full gear until Easter (Lunes de Pascua, in Spanish).
Fuelling the celebration mood, every bakery sells the traditional Easter cake, the Mona de Pascua, a large doughnut decorated with what once used to be soft boiled eggs, now replaced by chocolate ones.
