November in Barcelona – Events Calendar
Although Barcelona might be colder than in high-season months, and not so beach-friendly in November, there are plenty of reasons why spending November in Barcelona is a great idea. Hot chocolate and churros. Delicious panellets and sweet potatoes. Fewer tourists, shorter queues, cheaper prices of accommodation. The temperature which is still milder and more pleasant than in Central and Northern Europe. And of course, the fact that Barcelona never lacks exciting and interesting things to do and see even in colder months.
Tots Sants (All Saints’ Day) and La Castanyada
Celebrated on November 1st, All Saints’s Day is a public holiday when people commemorate the loved ones who are no longer living by visiting cemeteries and leaving floral tributes. Related to this holiday and also celebrated on November 1st is the folkloric festivity called the Castanyada. The Castanyada gathers families to eat together roasted chestnuts (castanyes), sweet potatoes, and mini-treats called paneletts. Avoid the cemeteries, treat yourself with traditional sweets!
