With its unique city-meets-beach vibe, it’s hard not to fall for the youthful energy and immersive culture of this cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia.

Situated on Spain’s North East Mediterranean coast, the city basks in warm sunshine for much of the year with peak averages between 26 - 30°C in August and September. Rarely even dipping below around 14 - 18°C in winter, it’s easy to understand Barcelona’s attraction.

While August is the warmest month on average, peak holiday season is May to October. Rainfall is limited with June to August the driest time of year, the most falling between September and November and in June you can expect about 10 hours of sunshine every day

The city is served by Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN), about 11 miles from the centre of town and is a major hub for Iberia, Ryanair, Vueling and Air Europa. Other nearby airports include Girona-Costa Brava (GRO) and Reus (REU) about 50 miles north and south and Lleida-Alguaire (ILD) about 100 miles west of Barcelona.
