If you would like more up to date information, here is a good page with meteorological information.

Together with March and May, April is one of the best months to enjoy your stay in Barcelona. Spring transforms the city: the festivals, music events and runs start. Here is our opinion on the advantages and disadvantages of travelling to Barcelona this month!

Advantages

Arrival of Spring: In Barcelona, the climate is always fantastic for doing everything, but we know that walking in the parks, sunbathing or taking an excursion to Park de Collserola is different in Spring. Enjoy this month and discover the best part of the city. If you want a guide for the best parks in Barcelona, you can read this interesting article.

Less tourists: In the month of April, Barcelona has tourists in the streets, but they are still not full of people. The months of summer are more chaotic, so Spring seems like the best month to travel to this destination stress free.

This year, Easter will be in March (until 1 April), so the month of April is cheaper than ever! Make the most of it!

The Catalan version of Valentine’s Day: St. George’s Day. This festival is already famous so many people come to visit Barcelona on this particular, beautiful day. You can’t miss this festival where the locals will also participate… and don’t forget to buy a rose or a book!

Disadvantages

The only inconvenience of travelling in April is that it will be too cold to swim in the sea. It’s the only month with high temperatures where it’s almost impossible to enjoy this part of the city. Even so, you can go to Barceloneta or to your preferred beach to sunbathe or time spend time with your friends.
