Autumn leaves

Autumn leaves found in details around Barcelona's buildings

Metro station Liceu

The last day of September, and after a rather hot week last week, it seems Autumn has come to visit Barcelona again. Leaves are gathering on the ground, leaving barer branches reflected in windows, and balconies are being cleared for cooler weather is coming…

Passeig de Joan de Borbò

Brown leaves, such a symbol of Autumn, aren’t they? There are lots of them around Barcelona, and not only of the natural kind. Just keep your eyes open, and look around you, and you will see!

Carrer Torrent de l’Olla

Leaves carved into panels on wooden doors, or scratched into walls the two-tone sgraffito way…

I forgot where this is…

…as well as forged from iron, and gracing window bars.

Carrer Dagueria

While they haven’t all quite fallen yet, and the sun is shining in the right direction, you can see their beautiful shadows cast on corner walls, like I saw yesterday morning… Have a wonderful week, everyone!

    Very nice post! I remember that the first time i saw the Liceu metro station was in September (4 years ago!), and I thought the leaves were a celebration of Autumn… Imagine my disappointment in seeing them on the walls through the whole year :)
    Very nice blog, it captures all the atmosphere of our magic city!

      Glad you like the post (and the blog)! And you know what? I think they should change the decor on those walls to match each season – would be much nicer (nice though these leaves are), wouldn’t it?

        Yes, in fact it is SO obvious! And it would also be quite cheap I think! Keep up with the good job, bye! :)

        You’re probably right, in that it shouldn’t be too expensive to change the decor each season. Maybe we can make the suggestion to TMB? ;)

        Definitely! :)
