Barcelona is known for its mild climate and sunny days, but there are times when it can get a little bit chilly. In order to plan the right time of year to visit Barcelona, you need to know what the weather is like there. Here’s everything you need to know about Barcelona’s weather in general and what it means for your trip!

Best months to go visit Barcelona?

Barcelona is one of those cities that you can visit all year round, this thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate, with temperatures ranging between 25 – 33 degrees Celsius in summer. The sun shines the entire day and the sky is  almost always beautiful blue, however, July and August can be really hot. Therefore some might like May, June, and September better. During those months of the year, it is ideal for outdoor activities.

A great activity to do is a 3 hours guided bicycle tour, you will see much more in less time and it is a fun way to get to know the city at the beginning of your holidays.

In winter (from November to March), temperatures range from 4-8 degrees Celsius at night and 15-20 degrees Celsius during the day. However, rain showers are more common during this time of year, it is good to be prepared for the few cloudy days!

When is the hottest month in Barcelona?

The hottest months in Barcelona are July and August, with an average temperature of  28°C (82°F). However, the heat can be quite extreme on some days. If you’re planning to visit Barcelona during these months, we recommend packing light clothing and bringing plenty of sun protection. A pleasant activity for some refreshment is a swim in the Olympic Swimming Pool on the Montjuïc mountain with astonishing views.

What is the average temperature in winter in Barcelona?

If you’re thinking about visiting Barcelona during the winter months, keep in mind that the average temperature is between 5°C (41°F) and 13°C (55°F).

While this may sound chilly compared to summer temperatures, it’s actually quite comfortable if you are sitting or walking on the side with sunshine.

If you are walking in the shade or in small streets, it is possible you find yourself shivering if you are not wearing the right clothes.

This also counts for the nighttime when walking along the beach or city center—be aware that on some days in the winter it can get down to freezing temperatures sometimes—but day-to-day weather in Barcelona is quite pleasant thanks to the many days with clear blue sky and rays of sunshine.


Barcelona is a beautiful city to visit, and it can be enjoyed all year round! You can have fun during any season. However, the best time to visit Barcelona is from May to September when the weather is warm and dry.

You won’t find yourself shivering in the winter months because there are plenty of indoor activities available as well as beaches where you can sunbathe during those colder months.
