November, the perfect month for a city-trip in Barcelona. There are only a few tourists and with the average of 17 degrees during the day it’s still very nice to do some sight-seeing! In this blog I will tell you all the events in Barcelona in November that are definitely worth visiting!
You’d might say Halloween but here in Barcelona we say La Castanyada. All Saints’ Day and the evening before are known as the Castanyada. You can eat a lot of roasted chestnuts (‘castanyes’), marzipan cakes (‘panellets’) and roasted sweet potatoes (‘moniatos’). And with the popularity of Halloween rising, you will also find a lot of parties around the city to celebrate this day! The event is on the 31st of October until the 1st of November.
This huge Manga convention is organized by the Fira of Montjuïc, with 75,000 square meters altogether it is one of the biggest conventions in Europe. Fans of Japanese comics and animation will have the best time here, with exhibits, workshops, music performances and anime showings you will not be bored during this festival. And for me the best part: they have a lot of food trucks!! The event is on the 31st of October until the 3rd of November. Check their website for more information and tickets.
Fiesta Mayor de Sant Martí
This neighborhood street festival will make you feel like a real local. With catalan music, human towers, parades with paper maché giants and of course traditional dinners with paella it makes it the perfect Catalan event. The festival is located in the streets of the ‘barrios’ Clot and Poblenou. The event is from the 8th of November until the 10th. Have fun!
