Best time to go to Barcelona

Peak Season:

Unlike other destinations, this city is actually fairly quiet during the peak season, which lands from July to August. Although tourists still crowd the streets during these months, many of the locals close their doors in order to flee the heat and humidity. If you do not mind the solitude and the moisture in the air, this is still an excellent time to visit, as you will be able to explore the city in the company of fellow visitors.

Shoulder Season:

The extensive shoulder season falls from September through December, than again in April through June. Although crowds thin out during these months, they are still a great time to visit, as the weather is usually beautiful, festivals are in full swing, and cheap flights to Barcelona are easy to find.

Off Season:

The off season, which begins in January and ends in March, is the best time to find inexpensive accommodations and flights to Barcelona. An added benefit is that the climate during this period is pleasantly warm and dry, making it easier to cruise the streets on a scooter, stroll through La Rambla, or go for a quick, relaxing sail.
