When autumn comes around and the temperatures drop, refreshments and ice creams lose their appeal. But just because you can’t take advantage of the many sunny terraces of Barcelona, it doesn’t mean you can’t still have a great time in the city. To warm up your body and soul, the capital of Catalonia offers you many comfortable spaces where you can take a hot sip of tea and a tasty bite in the colder months of the year. The neighbourhood of Gràcia, in particular, has some of the best tea rooms in the city.
