The Climate of Catalonia
Hugging the coast of Spain, Catalonia experiences a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot summers. The inland areas of the region experience warmer summers and colder winters, due to the reduced influence of the sea and the mountains. The rainfall periods are short and intense.
