Other destinationsEdit



Central Spain has a very different climate than the coastal areas. Unlike the coasts, which have a typical Mediterranean climate, the inland areas have a continental climate. The summers are very hot, regularly exceeding 35 º C. By contrast, there are very low temperatures in winter. The locals use an old Castillian saying to describe their climate as "nine months of winter and three months of hell".

The winters are often accompanied by heavy snowfall. Although it rarely rains during summer, there is often heavy rainfall in spring and autumn. The annual rainfall exceeds 500mm.
