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 is a secular state such that religion in the country has no influence on public administration and vice versa. About 75% of its population consider themselves to be Catholics. So, Spain can be generally considered a Catholic country. About 23% of the total population of the country consider themselves to be non-believers or non-religious people who neither go to church nor observe religious holidays. Only 2% are members of other faiths. The official separation of church from state took place only in 1979. A formal agreement which regulated the relations of religious institutions was signed immediately afterwards with the Vatican.
