When to go to Spain

With an oceanic, Mediterranean and continental climate, a stay in Spain is possible in all seasons. While the period from May to September is often recommended for seaside tourism, winters remain fairly mild, particularly in the southern area. On the other hand, in July and August, in this area, temperatures can approach 40° and it is then better to plan some refreshing activities such as swimming or visiting gardens. The summer cultural agenda is also very full.
