When to go and how long to stay in Barcelona?
Barcelona is beautiful all year round, but autumn and spring are probably the best to visit, when the weather is sunny and warm. Winter is also nice, with a good deal of sunshine too, and there are much less tourists compared to other seasons so you can save on hotels and experience more of the local life. Try to avoid August – it can be quite hot, the city is packed with tourists and most local businesses, like traditional restaurants, bars and shops, are closed.
To see all the important sights and monuments and enjoy the city, you need at least 3-4 days. And to explore a little bit of Catalonia beyond Barcelona, add another 2-3 days.
