When to travel
Spring (March – May): This is the time when the climate in Spain is quite comfortable, especially in the mainland when the weather is warmer but still not too hot. Spring is a great time to visit big cities like Madrid, Cordoba, Seville, especially the Alhambra palace in Granada, before every tourist group flocks here in the summer. You can also visit Valencia and experience street parties with the Las Fallas festival in March.
Summer (June – August): Summer is a peak tourist season in Spain, especially around coastal cities. The southern deep cities like Seville, Malaga or Cordoba will be extremely hot. We recommend visiting cities such as San Sebastian, Santiago de Compostela or Galicia region. Valencia and Barcelona are also interesting destinations thanks to their excitement.
Fall (September – October): Fall is probably the last time of year that you can visit the southern Spanish beaches before they close in the winter. The weather in Spain this season is very comfortable, with a few rains in October. If you have a desire to visit Andalusia, autumn is a great time.
Winter (November – February): Winter is a low season for mass tourists, but a great time for skiing in the North. However, it can be very cold and snow is extremely thick, so before you visit Spain this season, you need to be sure that the roads are still open.
Like many other European countries, Spain’s public transport system is very developed and convenient, especially in large cities.
Subway: you can only see this transport system in Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia.
Bus: In big cities and even smaller towns in Spain, you can easily move through the inner city bus system, which usually operates from 6 am to 11 pm or midnight.
