Climate in Spain and weather forecast - best seasons for visit
If the purpose of the holiday is to get acquainted with historical and architectural monuments, it is best to go on tour in autumn, spring or early summer, when there is a moderate temperature, and you can comfortably spend time outdoors. The historical sights of Madrid, Leon, Catalonia, Andalusia, San Sebastian and other ancient cities are also open to tourists all year round. Every year in Spain, many different carnivals, festivals and costume parties are held and a visit to one of such events will afford you the opportunity of not only having a great time, but also getting acquainted with the originality of this nationality and their traditions. Many people go to Spain for the New Year holidays. The period of carnivals starts from February and lasts until the end of March. The most massive marches are held in Tarragona, Cadiz and in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. For shopping, it is necessary to go between mid-January and the end of July. It is at this time in Spain, that the season of sales starts. The ski season in the country does not last long. At the end of December, the snow on the mountain tops is not yet stable. It is therefore better to go from the middle of January because by the end of March, due to a sharp warming, the snow slopes become unsuitable and the season ends.
Atmosphere of Spain: religion and languages
Spain can rightly be called one of the most multilingual countries in Europe. The dictatorial ways of governing by Francisco Franco, greatly influenced the formation of the state language. The majority of the ethnic population was therefore subjected to immense pressure. Their indigenous language was forbidden, and offenders caught trying to spread the language were put away and subsequently executed. But, despite this, the languages of the ethnic population of Spain still preserved and today they are gaining strength again and actively experiencing a renaissance. The ethnic strata of Spain are Catalans speaking Catalan, Galicians speaking Galician, Basques speaking Basque language, Asturians speaking Asturian language, Occitans speaking Occitan language, and Aragonese speaking Aragonese language. The latter on the list is the only language that is now on the verge of extinction. Catalan is spoken not only by the inhabitants of modern Catalonia, but also by residents of the Balearic Islands.
