Barcelona is a city that's loved by all kinds of tourists. During autumn, we can still take advantage of the comfortable temperatures as the town has a variety of activities to enjoy throughout this season. In fact, you can find many interesting offers just a short distance away from Primero Primera Hotel. The first recommendation is la Fiesta Major de Sarriá, which is a celebration that takes place at the beginning of October. This festival is a perfect example of popular culture with lots of citizens participating at the event. Decorating the streets and balconies is one of its main traditions. The Halloween party has been integrated seamlessly with Latin traditions. During the night of October 31 and the Día de Todos los Santos (All Saints' Day), which is on November 1st, it is customary in Barcelona to eat chestnuts and prepare panellets. These sweets are made from almonds and have become a delicacy for more than 500 years. In addition, it is also tradition to accompany the chestnuts and panellets with sweet wine and do all this near a fireplace, if possible. Collserolla Natural Park is one of the largest city parks in the world. Besides enjoying a broad environmental diversity, autumn is the ideal season to go mushroom picking. The less experienced will find different guides to learn how to differentiate between those edible mushrooms and those that are poisonous. It is also a fantastic option for hiking enthusiasts or for families wishing to do outdoors activities with children. This park is situated within walking distance of Primero Primera Hotel. Art lovers have an almost mandatory stop at the Mapfre Foundation Casa Garriga Nogués, located in a building with different architectural styles such as Rococo, Neoclassicism and Modernism. In its exhibition space you will have the opportunity to see focusing on the early years of pictorial modernity and on the great masters of photography. Barcelona is a city that lives for its theatres. The National Theater of Catalonia is one of the most outstanding cultural spaces of this city, although there are many others such as the Teatro Goya or the Teatre Lliure. If you prefer the opera,you will be able to see Kàtia Kabànova at the Gran Teatre del Liceu on November. On 9th, 10th, and 11th of November, BCN in las alturas takes place. This is a market where fashion and art are the real stars. The chosen location for this market is the Torre Bellesguard. This is a unique site that perfectly reflects the architectural evolution of this city. To get there, it is a pleasant 10-minute walk from Primero Primera Hotel. FC Barcelona (football club) is part of the city's identity. The classic game against Real Madrid will be played on October 28. This will be a great way to spend an unforgettable day in one of the most impressive stadiums in the world. Salón Naútico offers a great boat show in the city of Barcelona.
