Which is the best month to visit Barcelona? May, June, September…even April or early July and November.
Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to fully enjoy the charm of Barcelona, without experiencing the suffocating summer heat and the high tourist occupancy of the high season which makes Barcelona a real boiling point.
Barcelona is a unique city due to its modernity, cosmopolitan ambience, art, people and, of course, its climate. The Mediterranean gives it its privileged climate, with little rain throughout the year and very pleasant average temperatures, ranging from 10-12 degrees in winter (December to March) to 25-30 degrees during the summer (July and August).
Although the weather is nice all year and visitors can enjoy the city without fear of too many rainy days during your stay, the best time to book a hotel in the centre of Barcelona is, undoubtedly, the spring.
From April to June, the city looks beautiful at dawn, about 6.30 am – 7.00 am, and the warm afternoons that keep the sun beyond seven in the evening. The temperature is perfect, allowing the traveler to stroll through the centre without any stress and maximising the increasingly longer days.
It is perfect if you reserve a hotel with restaurant in Barcelona, to enjoy its exquisite typical spring dishes. In your suitcase it is enough to pack some light clothes and a thin jacket for the evenings, when it still gets cold.
The summer in Barcelona is the ideal time for lovers of heat and turmoil. Fall is perfect for hiking and long walks and winter is the time to enjoy the city from its bars, shops, theatres and museums: warmth, little rain and coldness with a enjoyable side to it that invites you to discover a more intimate Barcelona.
