As with culture, the climate in Spain is also different. You can find environments like the Oceanic (much rain, cool summer, moderate winter on the coast and cold inside). The mesmerising climate is located in the regions of Galicia, Asturias and Cantabria that are under the influence of the Atlantic Ocean.

We also have the Mediterranean climate of the coast that is characterized by sweltering summers and mild winters and with little rain throughout the year. This climate is found from Catalonia going down the Valencian Community, Murcia and Andalucia. 

More down the coast to the south and warmer are summers and milder winters. Then the continental climate of the interior, where summers are hot, and winters are cold. This climate is concentrated in the Community of Madrid, Castilla León and Castilla la Mancha.

In the mountains, such as the Pyrenees and the Sierra Nevada, summer is cool, and winter is cold. Throughout the year there is rain that in winter turns to snow. In the Canary Islands, the climate is low rain with hot summer (average of 25ºC) and mild winter (average 15ºC).

Author’s Closing Key Note:

In Spain, Flamenco dancing and singing is very famous (especially in Andalusia) as well as bullfights and bullfights (I do not share the suffering of the animal) The most renowned bull festival is San Fermin in Pamplona every year from July 1 to 7. In almost all cities, runs are made except in Barcelona.

In addition to San Fermín, as typical parties there are the Fallas in Valencia from March 1 to 19, the April Fair in Seville, the last week of April and lasts a week. Holy Week is also celebrated primarily in the south (Andalusia), where people are more religious.

Barcelona and Madrid are quite expensive cities, as are Bilbao and San Sebastián. The cheapest is the south (Andalusia), wherein Granada and Almeria for every glass of wine or beer, the bar gives you a tapa (food). Depending on the bar with 2 or 3 glasses of wine or beer one eats.
