Visiting Spain in Spring
Expect temperatures between 18 degrees in March and 22 degrees in May.
Springtime in Spain is beautiful – and for those living in colder European countries, it is a great choice for a quick sunny getaway before the crowds arrive with the summer. In fact, it could be the ideal season to visit – especially for activity holidays in Spain. Slightly cooler temperatures, fewer people and less crowding from tourists in the cities mean that there are often great deals to be found on accommodation.
Visiting Spain in Summer
Expect temperatures between 28 degrees in June and 31 degrees in August.
Summer is the most popular time to visit Spain. Its hot weather is irresistible to travellers coming from all over the world. Dry and sunny, tourists are almost guaranteed good weather – although prices will generally be higher and there is likely to be larger crowds all over the country.
Visiting Spain in Autumn
Expect temperatures between 28 degrees in September and 14 degrees in November.
October is a popular time to visit Spain, as the warm temperatures make it the perfect time to get a final dose of sunshine before winter sets in.

Visiting Spain in Winter
Expect temperatures between 11 degrees in December and 17 degrees in February.
Although Spain is wetter and cold in some places in the south, the weather remains mild and pleasant even in winter.
