Barcelona snow

Pictures of snow in Barcelona Spain.

Does it snow in Barcelona? Yes but very rarely. Barcelona hardly ever 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.

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.
