Written by Daniella

Although it is already early autumn, the weather in Barcelona can still be pleasant enough for some summer activities. There are still people on the beach, especially on the weekends, terraces have nothing to complain about, and many people go for outdoor activities now that it is a bit cooler during the day.

Autumn is a beautiful season and according to the meteorological services, we will experience more and more veroño’s, a mixture of verano and otoño (summer and autumn). That is why today, this article by ShBarcelona will give you a few ideas on what you can do to say goodbye to summer and say hello to veroño.

Dinner with the stars

Dinner with the Stars (or Cena con las Estrellas) is a special event at the Fabra Observatory, and you will be able to have a unique gastronomic experience, that combines scientific information with astronomical observations and a delicious dinner, served at one of Barcelona’s most exclusive viewpoints.

The evening begins with dinner, with the beautiful views of Barcelona as a backdrop. This is then followed by a science conference, a visit to the museum and – the ultimate highlight of the evening – you will observe distant constellations, stars and much of the solar system through a 1904 telescope (one of the largest and oldest in Europe that is still in operation).
