Heating Up Your Barcelona Winter Break |
Winter’s here. It’s wet and cold outside, the nights are long and generally, winter is not on our lists of favourite seasons. So now’s the perfect time for a break to somewhere with more pleasant temperatures, and there’s no better option than a winter holiday in Barcelona. Don’t get me wrong – it’s still winter in Barcelona, but it doesn’t rain that much and you’ll get sunny days more often than not. Certainly a lot different from the weather back home! Add to this the fact that this is a major tourist centre that attracts people from across Europe because of its history, culture, restaurants, bars and night life – and you have the perfect recipe for a really hot winter break.
