* Barcelona can be tricky to pack for in November as it is a going through a seasonal transition. Some days it will feel warm and mild if the sun is out and there is no wind, but then it can feel cooler in a matter of hours.
To be safe, bring fall clothing. Wear layers. Take off layers as needed. You can bring shorts and skirts, but make sure you have a sweater or warm jacket and a pair or two of pants.
