Walking down the Avd Mediterraneo you would be forgiven for believing the reports but turn onto the Calle Gerona and surrounding streets and it was positively heaving.
Calle Gerona runs parallel to the Avd Mediterraneo and following a successful trial last summer where the last part was pedestrianised, the mayor is wanting to extend this to the entire street. It is an ambitious project and in the current financial climate probably unlikely to happen soon.
And the bar owners certainly weren't complaining after the quiet Winter season - I bet that they are just hoping the good weather continues.

If you are heading out here for Easter then everything will be in full swing - the bar staff are getting their practice in now.
It will be similar to a Tesco Express in the UK so you don't need to worry about bringing heavy bottles of shampoo and shower gels which will weigh down your luggage - just buy it when you get here instead.
