When to go

Spain has almost as many different climates as it does cultural traditions. Summer sees the Mediterranean south bask in warm, subtropical weather. In marked contrast, places like Madrid, up in the central plains, get hot in summer, but are cool and calm in winter – ideal for shopping or browsing art galleries. So you can look forward to a relaxing beach holiday or tranquil city break whichever time of year you visit.
