The Easter cake is a traditional Catalan dessert- ‘La mona’ !!

Traditionally the best man gives "La mona" to his godson on Easter Sunday after mass. Easter Monday is a tradition that meet  families or a group of friends that go together to eat it off somewhere. This day, the typical food is: lamb chops, grilled rabbit, paella and a good  wine. Finally the lunch is  completed with a good dessert:  'La Mona' a very special Easter cake!!

During these days, the bakeries are competing to display in their showcase the most spectacular chocolate sculpture- which can be a model of a building, sculptures of famous people, chocolate eggs or funny comic figures for children- any idea is acceptable for the chocolate figures!.  That is why these day is called "el día de la mona” "the day of the monkey "

Enjoy this special day during your stay with Habitat Apartments
