Sun, sun & sun!

Because of its location, the city of Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate, so mild winters and balmy summers. In the summer, the nights can be especially warm, with temperatures of 20° C and way above.

Barcelona doesn't get much rain, but when it does, it usually comes down in buckets. In the winter months, there is even a (small) chance of some snowfall. The average daytime temperature during the summer months is just under thirty degrees Celsius.
