Pictures snow Barcelona Spain. Does it snow in Barcelona? Barcelona rarely gets snow in the city center, but it can happen. It usually only snows very lightly in the city for perhaps a few hours and it usually melts within 24 hours. In February 2018 Barcelona and the northern part of the province of Catalonia has had more snowfall than usual which has effected traffic. This was part of the cold air front nicknamed the "beast from the East" which swept over Europe from Siberia. In Spanish it was called "la bestia del este".

The hill areas near Barcelona, which are around 500m to 1000m altitude, can also get snow sometimes, but still is it rare. There is lots of snow evey winter in the Pyrenees mountains which border Spain and France. Every few years there can be heavy snow in the north of Catalonia in the counties that border the Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees mountains. This happened in February 2018.
