Advantages and disadvantages of travelling in November

November is a good month to visit the city of Barcelona, although often we have come to believe that travelling in low season only has disadvantages. Here is our advice about the advantages and disadvantages of travelling in low season in Barcelona.

Advantages

First of all? Obviously the cheap prices! Plane tickets and accommodation are more affordable for everyone, even just for the weekend. In Barcelona, there are much less tourists in November, which means saving time in different aspects:

  • Economically: You can visit one of the most beautiful cities in Spain for a cheaper price
  • Excitement: Without nerves created by streets full of tourists, long entry queues to places of interest, etc.
  • Gastronomically: Finally you can have something more traditional in the café’s and restaurants, without waiting for a table or finding yourself getting ripped off. Autumn in Barcelona also offers more culinary experiences with more typical products like Panellets, Castañas, Boniatos and the best candied fruit. Also, you won’t be able to resist enjoying a hot chocolate, together with typical Churros. Here we recommend the best places to eat Churros in Barcelona.

Disadvantages

Often, the advantages and disadvantages go hand in hand, which is why the main disadvantages of travelling to Barcelona in November are:

  • Low temperatures: You won’t be able to comfortably wear your swimsuit on the beach, nor will you be able to swim in the sea at Barceloneta.
  • Hours of light: Sunset is earlier in Barcelona in November, so you will have to make the most of the sun!
