There’s nowhere like Barcelona or Seville to spend Easter Week - no cities in Spain can touch it for sheer style, looks or energy.
Barcelona is for all its outrageous architecture, designer shopping, hip bars and vibrant cultural scene, Barcelona is more than just this year's fad. It's a confident, progressive city, tirelessly self-renewing while preserving all that's best about its past. As neighborhoods are rebuilt with panache, and locals and visitors alike pursue the latest sensation, there's also an enduring embrace of the things that make life worth living – the daily market visit, strolling down the Ramblas, a lazy harbourside lunch, frenetic festival nights, Sunday by the beach or FC Barcelona's next big game.
Things that you cannot miss if you're in Barcelona Urbany Hostels:
And if you stay at Sevilla Urbany Hostel, we recommended Seville's old city – where you'll want to spend most of your time – is sited along the east bank of the Guadalquivir. At its heart, side by side, stand the three great monuments: the Giralda tower, the Catedral and the Alcázar, with the cramped alleyways of the Barrio Santa Cruz, the medieval Jewish quarter and now the heart of tourist life, extending east.
Seville's reputation for gaiety and brilliance, for theatricality and intensity of life does seem deserved. It's expressed on a phenomenally grand scale at the city's two great festivals – Semana Santa (Holy Week at Easter) and the week-long Feria de Abril (starting two weeks after Easter Sunday).
Make a night at Urbany Hostels!
