February is a good month to visit the city of Barcelona, although often we have come to believe that travelling in low season only has disadvantages. Here is our opinion of the advantages and disadvantages of travelling in the low season in Barcelona.


1Valentine’s Day in the city which provides you with romantic moments and places at every corner. On the other hand, if you do not have a partner, Barcelona is a city with clubs and parties with a multicultural scene where you can find the love of your life, or one just for the moment!

2 - Due to its moderate climate, in February the runs and marathons in Barcelona begin. You can take a look at this article about the 10 best runs in Barcelona and… if you are lazy, don’t worry! Watching is as much fun as participating ;)

3 – Normally, a downside of travelling in February is the price of flights and accommodation but this year is different! In fact, Barcelona has lowered the prices of flights, hotels, apartments etc. Therefore, now is a great time to visit Barcelona.


- It goes without saying that travelling in low temperatures isn’t the best plan in the world. But did you know that Barcelona has some of the mildest temperatures in the whole of Europe? So put on a coat and come and discover the magic of the city.

- Be careful with the sunlight hours. In February the city has little more than 10 hours of lights and the opening hours of some tourist attractions are reduced.
