Q: For a present, I got my parents a present of a weekend away in Barcelona. They are going the Easter break. My dad was in Barcelona before and loved it, except the shops were closed. I understand that the shops will be closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. However will the shops be open on the Saturday? Thanking you for your help.
A: As a general rule shops are closed on Sundays and on official public holidays in Barcelona. You will find a list of public holidays on the link below called "Barcelona public holidays". The shops will therefore be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday as well as on Sunday however the shops will be open as normal on Saturday during the Easter holiday in Barcelona.
