Spain has on average, a temperate climate. It is however split up in to 3 distinct classes. Mediterranean, Oceanic and Semi-arid. On the Iberian Peninsula, the Mediterranean climate is dominant and is characterised by dry and warm summers and cool and wet winters. Barcelona falls into this area. The semi-arid climate is in the south east part of the country, around the region of Murcia and in the Ebro valley where the dry season continues beyond the end of summer. An oceanic climate prevails from the Pyrenees to the Asturias due to the moderating effects of the Atlantic. This gives this region a bit more rain and so is greener, so much so it’s often referred to as España Verde (Green Spain).
