If you are looking for a sunny destination for this summer, Barcelona might be the perfect place. In this beautiful Spanish city, you can guarantee a sunny sky and amazing weather during the summer season. In July and August, you can expect on average from 23 to 29 degrees Celsius (which is from 73 to 84 Fahrenheit degrees). Ideal to combine some beach time in the morning and cultural visits in the evening. However, if you are not used to hot weathers, you may want to avoid receiving direct sun radiation at the central hours of the day.

3. Summer festivals and big events

If you are a Mediterranean food lover, Barcelona will delight your palate. From exquisite pan tomaca (bread with tomato and olive oil) for breakfast to seafood, paella and fideuá (similar to paella but with noodles instead of rice) for lunch or dinner. Summer seasonal products in Barcelona are equally refreshing and delicious. And the atmosphere in the restaurants and bar terraces make Barcelona once again your perfect destination for the summer.

5. Museum Picasso

Barcelona has a massive cultural offer (Sagrada Familia, Park Guell…). But you can’t leave the city without visiting the Museum Picasso. One of the most extensive art collections of the 20th century with artwork such as Las Meninas (Velazquez) and some of Pablo Picazzo’s masterpieces.  Unlike most shops in Barcelona, the museum is open in the afternoon, so you may want to visit it during the central day hours to avoid the strong heat. It is important that you book your tickets in advance, as there can be massive queues outside and for an even better experience, you may want to go for a guided tour that you can book on the official website.
