Barcelonans associate Easter Week with a whole host of rituals. And they’re not necessarily religious rituals, either. One of the most popular is to take your the first day off and head on out to your favorite beach. It may still take some daring force yourself to take the plunge, but everyone is happy to feel the gentle April sun on their faces and bodies. The city usually manages to have all ten of Barcelona’s beaches in perfect condition by the time the day rolls around: they’ve used tractors to sift and dry the sand, cleared it of refuse brought in by winter storms, and checked that all the showers, benches, wi-fi, municipal rest rooms and other important elements of the coastal infrastructure are in working order for the arrival of the beachgoers.
