Good Friday 2011 El Cort Ingels open?

We will be arriving in Barcelona on April 22 Good Friday, will El Cort Ingels be open? We are staying at an apartment near there and we will want to buy groceries.

Also the next day is St. Jorges Day How crazy, busy will Barcelona be that day?

it will be closed together with most other shops, however El Corte Ingles owns a chain of small convenience shops / supermarkets called OpenCor, they are open 365 days of the year, See store locator here


As for Sant Jordi's day, it is very civilised, the city centre is packed with book stalls and rose sellers. the tradition is for men to give their lady a red rose and in return she gives him a book. it has none of the wildness of La Merce or Sant Joan's day

Hi, just to clarify - OpenCor outlets in Barcelona are NOT open 365 days of the year, (I live immediately next door to one) as they are in the rest of Spain. Stores in Catalunya are obliged to close on: May 1st, September 11, December 25th and January 1st. However, they should be open on Good Friday. Regards.
