Autumn in Barcelona | Photo: Tom Walton
It's that lovely time of year in Barcelona now when you just about need a light jacket in the morning but can leave it in the office if you go out for a lunchtime stroll and will definitely want to take it off if you're sitting on a café terrace in the sunshine.
To appreciate the true colors of autumn, you probably want to get away from Barcelona as far as the Montseny (about 60km) or the magnificent countryside of the Garrotxa (about 140km), for both of which you really need a car (or be a really serious cyclist).
As you can see, for our photo, we had to make do with the display in the baker's window (plus half a dozen panaiets, just to actually taste autumn!).
