The weather, What to wear - Inside Barcelona

Barcelona has a mild Mediterranean climate. The summers can get very hot: hitting 30 degrees is very common! But the winters are temperate and sunny. However, keep in mind that the humidity is quite high and can make the heat sticky and the cold bone-chilling. The rainiest months are October, November, March and April.
