Roads closed, trains that never started their journey, desolate city streets, jam packed metro stations, schools and universities closed…while some enjoyed the snowball fights, building snowmen and even snowboarding along the streets of Barcelona.

Despite this unexpected snow fall, our friendly weather men have assured us perfect temperatures in Barcelona this Easter!
