Barcelona Honeymoon: Weather and Travel Guide

This isn’t your average metropolis. Barcelona, the proud capital of the “nation” of Catalonia, has a quirky blend of timeless elegance and innovative spirit. Vast museums and celebrated structures find their homes among lively markets and outdoor cafes, and experiments in art and fashion are apparent in the laid-back bar and lounge scene, which moves out to the beaches and rooftops in summer months. There’s sand, sangria and plenty to do in this super-cultural locale.

Before You Go: Need-to-know info

Language: Catalan and Spanish
Flight time: 8 hours from New York City; 14.5 hours from LA; 12 hours from Chicago
Getting around: Subway, bus, taxi and car

When to Go: Barcelona at its best

Best weather: The Mediterranean climate brings cool winters and hot summers, but rarely goes to extremes. Average temperatures range between 40-81 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity can make midsummer months sticky, so May, June and September are best for beachgoers.
Best prices: September to December (watch out for soaring prices the last half of December)

What to Do

Unbelievable buildings: Architecture buffs or not, you’re sure to stare in awe at the surreal details of the buildings, balconies and columns of Eixample (Barcelona’s 19th-century extension). Here, Modernista architect Antoni Gaudi was dancing to his own beat and blessed his many creations with breathtaking — though bizarre — curves, colors and asymmetric oddities.

Sunshine: The streets and beaches of Barcelona are sunny all year long, making the spot ideal for outdoor eating and shopping. Be sure to take advantage of the lovely weather by venturing through La Rambla, where five end-to-end avenues are lined with open-air markets — a great place to get a taste of the city’s people, cafes, shops and culture. (Get to the market early; for a sit-down lunch try El Quim de la Boqueria.)
