Autumn in Barcelona

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.

You really couldn't call it "autumn" at all, though you'll see panaiets in all the bakers and chestnuts being roasted and sold in the streets.

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!).

  2. Coming from someone who was born and brought up in Skye, Kate, that's rich ;-)!

    OK: bet you a coffee that we can drink it on the usual terrace this lunchtime. Deal?

    A spot of rain never lasts long in Barcelona!

  3. Oh you are so ON! You didn't check the weather forecast for today, did you??!!! K.

  4. As a gentleman, I feel honour-bound to confess to the world that I lost my bet :-)!
