Processions, parades and religious festivals

From Domingo de Ramos, the city is decked out in the quaint garb of religious festivities, with impressive processions of thousands of people along the streets. It is definitely worth the special occasion to see all the live cosmopolitan metropolis in motion, with a lively and fun atmosphere thanks to the good weather that already prevails. Around the Cathedral (Cathedral of Santa Eulalia, built in the 13th century), in Barrio Gótico, there is a parade with traditional palms. This event can be used to get to know Barcelona's streets, shopping in las Ramblas, Port Vell and strolling through Raval neighbourhood.

On good Friday, the impressive parade of the bearers takes place, where members of a religious order take on the responsibility of carrying the enormous statue of Virgin Macarena. It is also time for the traditional exit from the Christ of Lepanto. This is a great opportunity to get to know the neighbourhood of Raval, before leaving the Church of Sant Agustí and getting carried away by the tumult and animation of its people.
