Whether you are into culture, shopping, history, or fine dining, Barcelona has what you are looking for. Book your entire vacation package, from flights to city tours, with Orbitz.com and get ready to experience Spain as you've always dreamed about it.
The fantastical nature of this coastal city can be seen almost everywhere you look. Marvel at the stained-glass skylight, impressive sculptures, and modernist architecture of the Palace of Catalan Music. Wander up the magical twisted staircase of the Park Güell to see the incredible panorama from the top of the park's main hill. With so much to see, it's hard to narrow down which attractions you should visit first.
Swept by the breezes with humid, temperate winters and balmy, dry summers, Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Thunderstorms and rains are common from August through September, while dry months span from February through July.
Summer is peak season, and August is the hottest and most tourist-populated month. Save bucks traveling between mid-September to mid-November, when the weather is still pleasant, or come when it's colder -- and cheaper -- from January until March.
Festivals and events are held year-round and one of the most popular is the Festa Major de Gràcia, and August street bash, featuring live music, outdoor movies and theater.
Early summer and fall are two excellent times to visit Barcelona. The city's Mediterranean climate ensures that these seasons experience pleasant weather. If you want to swim, time your trip between June and October, because the sea may be too cold for a dip at other times of the year. August temperatures average 81 degrees Fahrenheit, so Barcelona can be both hot and crowded, because this is the month when most Europeans take their annual vacations. Winters can be chilly, but temperatures rarely go below freezing and snow is not common. Winter prices tend to be lower, and if your interests lie mostly in indoor activities and museums, winter may be an ideal time for you to visit Barcelona.
