What are the best months for a visit to Barcelona?

As you can see from the table above the weather is pleasant for most of the year. However you'll experience the absolute best weather from May to the end of July making these months particularly attractive for a visit to the city. September is also a good month.

August is generally hot (sometimes peaking around 34°C, 95F ) and humid so if you love humid saunas then this is the time of the year for you! Seriously though, the extra humidity makes the temperature seem even hotter. If you decide to visit Barcelona in August then make sure to choose a hotel room with air conditioning.

Cooler Months

The weather in October and November is still pleasant but starting to get a little cooler (21°C down to 15°C, 69 to 59F). You won't find sunshine every day though, so be prepared for days when it could be overcast with a little rain.

Remember these are only guidelines and the weather can vary somewhat from year to year. Especially in the last few years there has been some fluctuations from the norm.

Winter

From November to February the temperatures are cooler, averaging around 12°C or 53F. It doesn't tend to rain a lot here in Winter so even though it may be cooler, often times you'll have some sunny days too. But do be prepared for some overcast and rainy days. It's all the luck of the draw.
