Days when you might find some establishments closed and public transport limited... and celebrations to attend!
By Time Out Barcelona|
Most shops, banks and offices, and many bars and restaurants, close on public holidays ('festius'/'festivos'), and public transport is limited. Plenty of locals take long weekends whenever a major holiday comes along. If the holiday coincides with, say, a Tuesday or a Thursday, many will take the Monday or Friday off, in what is known as a 'pont'/'puente' ('bridge').
