Shopping for Easter
One of the best markets for purchasing traditional Easter palms is the one held in Vic on Palm Sunday weekend. It’s a very large market sprawling across various points of the city but if you decide to go, make sure you head for the Plaça Major: as you stroll around this arcaded square you’ll understand why it’s been a trading site since time immemorial.
A very special fair is also held in Tordera on Palm Sunday weekend. It’s set up in Prudenci Bertrana Park, in the lower part of the river island. It’s such a lovely spot that any excuse is good enough to spend the day exploring the area. And there’s no better excuse than the Palm Market and Fair, an extension of the ancient Sunday market with a unique appeal that will leave you lost for words. So without further ado, make some space in your diary!
