Holidays in Spain

Why go to Spain?

Spain is a treasure chest of unforgettable scenery. Separating Spain from France, the snow-capped Pyrenees, as well as having breathtaking views, offer resorts like La Molina and Panticosa with plenty of opportunities for skiing. Everywhere are reminders of Spain’s rich and varied past, from the Alhambra in Granada to Don Quixote’s windmills in La Mancha. Old mixes with new in cities such as Toledo, Barcelona, Salamanca and the capital, Madrid, where celebrated museums, galleries and baroque churches rub shoulders with blaring bars and thumping discos.

What will never change is the Spaniards’ passion for partying. Snack on tapas as you skip from bar to bar, before heading off to enjoy Spain’s infamous nightlife. Then revitalise the senses - Spain’s cultural heritage brims with flamenco, painting, opera, literature, sport and flamboyant, colourful fiestas.

When to visit Spain

Spain has a predominantly warm Mediterranean climate, with dry summers and winters with balanced temperatures. Here you can enjoy more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. It is no surprise, then, that this is one of the warmest parts of Europe. When talking of weather, special mention should be made of the Canary Islands.  The Canary Islands location facing the coast of Africa gives them a benign climate with mild temperatures with 22ºC year-round average on the coasts.

Variety is the main characteristic of the Spanish climate due to the country's immense geographical diversity. Travelling north, to the Cantabrian coast, you will find a mild climate with high rainfall. Winters are mild and in summer temperatures rarely exceed 25ºC. However, in the higher parts of the country, the climate is harsher and it is common to see snow from the beginning of winter to the end of spring. This is the case of the Pyrenees, the mountains of Sierra Nevada, the Central and Iberian ranges, and the Cantabrian Mountains, amongst others.
