Poble Espanyol celebrates spring this year with a big festival full of colour. 'De flor en flor' ('From flower to flower') is the name of this festival of flowers and gardens celebrating its second year in Barcelona. The five-day festival (April 13 to 17) for the senses features floral arrangements everywhere, and a long list of activities for the whole family: an orchid show, a bonsai exhibition, a rose display, another exhibition related to the flower world, a quick-paint contest for kids and adults, and live music. You'll also find workshops with a plant or gardening theme, and kids can become familiar with the art of cultivating an urban garden.
There's lots going on during Easter week (April 13 to 17) in Barcelona, from the most traditional celebrations to parties, concerts, exhibitions, things to do with kids and more. We also suggest some getaways if you feel like a break from your city break!
