But as night fell, tensions rose as protesters, mostly dressed in black, marched through the city center to the National Police headquarters.
The Catalan police acted with the support of the equipment provided to clear the street. The shops in the center of Barcelona were again targeted by protesters breaking several windows.
More than 100 people, including seven on Sunday, were arrested following violent clashes with police on Tuesday when Hasél was arrested to serve a nine-month prison sentence for his tweets and lyrics insulting the Spanish monarch.
Catalan police said more than 35 arrests were made in Barcelona and other nearby cities on Saturday after protesters smashed shop windows and engaged in police fighting. Other protests across Spain, including the capital Madrid, have remained largely peaceful.
