Spain: Climate & Weather


The climate is subject to various influences depending on the region: It is an oceanic climate on the Atlantic coast which provides warm temperatures and a rainy autumn.

In the centre, there is a continental climate with different seasons, rather harsh winters and occasionally stifling summers.

The southern part enjoys a Mediterranean climate with well-differentiated seasons and short inter-seasonal showers, temperate winters and hot summers.

Like most of the Mediterranean countries, the best time to discover the country is between May and June or September and October which allows you to enjoy comfortable temperatures while avoiding the influx of tourists in the middle of summer.

What to do in Spain


The attractions of Spain go beyond its beaches and festive atmosphere: It has marked regional identities, a magnificent historical heritage, diverse landscapes and lively cities that all make this country an exciting destination.

Madrid, the capital, offers many beautiful museums; the Prado museum is the most famous as well as being very beautiful, the Plaza Mayor has a lovely relaxing botanical garden, the Royal Palace is notable with its beautiful decorations and there are several bullrings where fans can watch good quality bullfights.

Barcelona is another city in this splendid country that you mustn’t miss: It is dynamic and active in many areas, very lively and "connected", this city will seduce you with the Ramblas where you can meander during the day and night, the Gaudi's Holy Family church, various museums, the medieval district (Barrio Gotico), Park Güell, numerous shops and various markets.

Andalusia boasts treasures that should be seen: Cordoba's mosque-cathedral, Seville's Alcazar Gardens, Granada and the Alhambra are some examples of recommended stopovers in this area.

In Castile, Toledo is another wonder that will dazzle you: A medieval city overlooking the Tagus, it has churches, museums and palaces, synagogues and a Gothic cathedral.
St. James Way is another manner to explore the country, on foot though.

There's so much to see in Spain, you will realize that one visit will not be enough!
