With more than 300 sunny days, Catalonia has deserved its surname "the sunny side of the Pyrenees". The climate, however, varies depending on which part of the region you visit.
By the coast there is mediteranean climate with mild winthers and hot summers with temperatures 30-35 degrees. Due to the closeness to the sea, the heath is more humid than centrally in Catalonia. Barcelona has its own climate. The city is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and on the fourth side the sea and therefore it has a high humidity in July and August. In these months, a ride in the airconditioned metro and buses can be a relief. The best months to visit Barcelona is September-November and March-May, but Barcelona can easily be visited all year around, as the sun almost always shines. Even in December and January it is possible to find a sunny spot with a nice temperature.
Inland there is continental climate which means that there is generally a big flucturation in the temperatures and that it is colder in the winther-time, not at least in the mountains. In the Pyrenees, there are several skisport resorts.
In the summer, the heath is dry and therefore pleasant even on very hot days, if you stay in the shadow in the mid-day sun. There is usually beautiful weather from Marc to October. The Catalans would never enter the swimming pool before in the middle of June, but our guests from more northern countries have jumped in April as well as September.
