A few days before Holy Week, bakeries, patisseries and supermarkets begin selling monas de Pascua: a sweet pastry difficult to resist. Eating a mona at Easter is one of the most delicious Valencian traditions, although there are other regions, such as Murcia and Catalonia, which also have this custom. According to tradition, a godfather should gift a mona to his godchild to be eaten on Easter Monday when all the family get together.
This is one tradition you will still be able to enjoy. So go straight to your nearest bakery or supermarket to get one. They’re absolutely delicious!
