It did once rain in Barcelona. We remember it well. It was some time around 1985. Crowds of people rushed out onto the streets, young children splashed in puddles, everyone was amazed and pensioners recalled with nostalgia the city's previous wet day in 1959. In case you're really gullible we are being facetious, but the fact remains that Barcelona is blessed with mighty fine (and mostly dry) weather almost year round - at least if you're the sort who likes to feel the sun on their face and wander around in nothing but flip-flops, a pair of speedos and a string vest. Even in winter temperatures rarely dip below 10 degrees celsius, and hardier folk will still be able to enjoy a cana of beer outside on some of the warmer days.

During summer, cold and unpleasant weather really is rare and the climate can even get a bit too sultry - July and August are the main offenders with average temperatures hovering just under 30 degrees Celsius. In general these are not the very best months to visit Barcelona, and in August in particular many residents will do the sensible thing and abandon the city to relax on the coast (some shops and restaurants will shut during this widely observed month-long holiday). Having said that, if you do arrive in summer there are plenty of opportunities to shield from whatever the hot weather throws at you, whether in the air-conditioned environs of the city's best museums or simply down at Barceloneta beach. Just don't forget your sunscreen or sizzled skin might be your most poignant souvenir from your time in Spain.

Barcelona weather

So the Friday to Sunday we last visited in April 2014 were figments of our imagination were they. It was a bloody monsoon, we were both constantly wet. Not a good experience
