Autumn is one of the best seasons to visit Spain; the summer crowds have thinned, the insufferable temperatures have cooled and the country's landscapes are spectacular.
From autumnal festivals to the best places to see the leaves change colour, explore the most beautiful locations to visit in Spain this autumn.
Located in the Basque Country in Spain, Otzarreta Forest is a beautiful part of Gorbea Natural Park. The ancient trees, mixed with the foggy atmosphere, gives the area a mystical quality.
Visit Plaza de España and Parque Maria Luisa
One of our favorite things to do in Seville in October is to simply enjoy the fresh fall air.
Parque María Luisa makes for an especially lovely destination on a beautiful autumn day—and of course, you won't want to miss Plaza de España. The grandiose pavilion was built for the 1929 Ibero-American exposition and has since become a must-see for visitors from all over the world. The area takes on an especially magical air in autumn.
As nighttime blankets the city and crowds clear out of tourist attractions earlier than usual, you can enjoy a peaceful stroll through the park to the plaza on a crisp autumn evening. And if you're traveling with your special someone, this makes for an especially romantic start to the night!
