If you were to imagine a holiday in Spain you would be forgiven for only conjouring up images of baking hot summer days spent lounging around a pool with plenty of factor fifty. Spain’s weather year round is normally fairly consistent, with mild winters making it a very popular destination for those seeking some much needed winter sun. But the vibrant and energetic capital city Madrid offers a far more varying range of temperatures due to its high altitude and close proximity to Sierra de Guadarrama National park. Shoulder seasons Autumn and Spring offer a more temperate climate, and it is therefore no surprise that these are the most popular times for visitors.
