Barcelona in December? Am I crazy?

by /bio/shgreen »

Considering a trip to Barcelona, and the nearby area, in mid-late December -- is that a crazy time to consider? I have school-age kids so unable to visit other times in the fall/spring. What are the drawbacks to a visit at that time of year?
Thanks for any advice folks can offer!

Hi! I think it's perfectly reasonable to visit Barcelona in December in terms of doing sightseeing and enjoying great food. The temperature tends to be around 40-50F during day time. They only downsides are the cold weather and that you can't go to the beach and swimming. Otherwise I don't see any obstacles!

Absolutely not! Barcelona is beautiful at all times! There are many indoor activities, and opportunities to explore that wont at all be effected by the slight chill. One of my favorite things about traveling is learning the language, the local dance, and how to prepare some dishes. All of these activities are indoor and full of culture, so you don't have to worry about being cold!

I like Barcelona City, Because of beach visit and view are so Beautiful, and also mention that Spain is one of the warmest countries in Europe, especially Barcelona because of the warming effect of the sea in winter, it does not get very cold. The average maximum temperature in Barcelona in December is 57°F/14°C and the average minimum temperature drops down to 43°F/6°C. One can expect an average of 6 hours of sunshine every day.
