Research has proven that the regions of Valencia and Murcia have the healthiest climate in Europe. When considering the 300 days of sun, the low humidity, and the clean air that these regions enjoy, it is no wonder that this is so. Although summers are warm, the sea acts as a cooling buffer keeping the temperatures between 28 to 32 degrees. The winters are extremely mild and therefore attract many northerners attempting to escape frigid temperatures in other parts of Europe. Even in January, the coldest month of the year, temperatures easily reach the 15 and 16-degree mark. In the mountainous interior, the sun also shines, but the temperatures here are cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer. Although it does not rain often (around 44 days per year), when it does rain it rains hard for a few days and then the sun breaks through again.
