Weather & Climate

The climate in the interior of Spain

The weather in our region still enjoys the Mediterranean character for which Spain is so famous. It has mild winters, in which frost is a rarity that occurs only in the night hours and then at most once or twice a year. January and February are the winter months until December we often see nice weather, suitable for sunbathing. (This, of course, in the afternoon and out of the wind.)

In April, spring begins, when the days become longer and warmer. On the twelfth day of May, the beginning of summer is celebrated. From this day on, good weather is also expected and rain is the exception.

The warmest summer months (July and August) are pleasant compared to the interior. Extremely high temperatures, as often indicated by Dutch weathermen and women for the Spanish interior, are not common here. We always benefit from the sea breeze and the high location of Casa de cinco Hermanos (706 meters above sea level). Temperatures vary between 30oC and 35o C during these months. The evenings are pleasantly warm for a long time, but due to the height, the nights are also nice and cool, which promotes a good night's sleep.

The climate in the rest of the interior is very diverse. This is due to the large differences in altitude and distance from the sea.

In short, you can say the further inland the more "continental", i.e. colder in winter and hotter in summer. In addition, it is on average slightly colder in the north than further south. In our region, night frosts sometimes occur in winter.

During the day it is here until December regularly around 20° C. The amount of sunshine and precipitation is similar to that in the Mediterranean. In summer, however, thunderstorms can occasionally occur. However, the weather here is not as easily "angry" as in the Netherlands.
