Best time to visit Barcelona, Spain?

  • The best time to visit Barcelona is in September when temperatures are warm but hotels are much cheaper. During this time, expect to pay approximately $140/night for a one-bedroom rental. That's 40% saved per day compared to what you would have paid in July. Average temperatures hover in the mid 70s, a few degrees colder than the average 85°F you would get during high season.
  • In Barcelona, tourism peaks in the summer and this comes with higher accommodation rates. Try avoiding the GSM week (February 24th to March 2nd), the SONAR week (June 14th - 18th) as well as the Primavera Sound week (May 30th to June 4th) if you're on a budget; accommodation rates surge the most during these weeks.
