What to wear in Barcelona in March?

What to pack for a visit to Barcelona, Spain in March. Barcelona weather in March can only be described as varied.

This month has one foot in the winter and the other in the spring which means March can be cold, windy and rainy one day and then it can be sunny and hot and dry the next.

Temperatures in March can be as low as 9C to 10C degrees Celcius (48 to 50F) in the evening and then go up to 16 to 18C Celcius (60 to 65F) during the day.

The day temperatures will feel warmer in the sun, so at mid-day it might almost feel like spring or even summer - depending on where you come from.

What to pack for Barcelona in March?

Pack winter clothes with a bit of summer clothes.

In March we recommend you pack mostly winter wear, but perhaps throw in a set of summer wear like a pair of shorts and a couple of t-shirt.

But you should only plan to wear the summer stuff in the mid-day sun. As mentioned the early mornings and evenings are much cooler than mid-day and if it is rainy and windy then it can be very cold.

So pack mostly warmish clothes like long trousers/jeans, sweater, fleece, cardigan, light anoracks and a cap, scarf and light gloves - that sort of thing.

The same stuff you would pack for the fall/autumn.

If you plan to be out all day touring and get back late in evening, then be sure to bring a fleece or anorak. A good tip to take is a light foldable backpack with you during day to store for extra fleeces or caps, gloves etc.

If you are planning tours outside the city where there is also much to see, then remember that it can be quite a lot cooler at inland or at coastal destinations.

So if you plan to book day tours to Montserrat mountain or the Pyrenees mountains from Barcelona then be sure to pack warm clothes and bring good walking shoes with a good grip.

Best day tours from Barcelona

Barcelona is generally a casual wear city, so jeans and T-shirts are fine for most occasions. But the top night clubs and dinner restaurants expect a little more from their guests. The top Barcelona night clubs have a very strict dress code, so pack nice shoes, long trousers and a shirt or polo-shirt for men and smart for women.

The good news is that Barcelona is a great shopping city, so you are always pick something up if necssary.
