WHEN BEST TO GO
The early and late months of summer are the best times to visit Barcelona, in June, July and September, when the temperature hovers around 23°C.
Spring and autumn are still pleasant, and Barcelona remains a tourist hotspot even in the winter, although with temperatures at around 11°C at this time of year, it is best to bring warm clothes.
As well as identifying themselves with Spain and Spanish culture, Barcelonans are Catalonians and speak Catalan. Barcelona is typical of Europe in its attitude to clothing, and Barcelonans are generally welcoming and cheerful. In Barcelona, people rise late, take an afternoon siesta, eat an evening meal around 10pm and then begin their evenings.
Catalan and Spanish, with English widely spoken in tourist areas.
