Barcelona has an extremely pleasant weather, and if you’re visiting in the summer months you’ll experience the best of it. Most days are very sunny, with an average temperature of 28°C throughout June, July and August. But not far from the city stands the Pyrenees mountain range, where temperatures are much lower, sometimes falling as far as -15°C in winter. So, if you’re planning on taking a hiking trip up there, or visiting one of the ski resorts, you’ll want to be properly prepared.
