Culture and Climate

Food, drink and culture

One of the draws of any holiday is the cuisine, and the Costa Dorada is no exception. Here, you can sample amazing seafood and local specialities such as suquet, a Catalan stew and, of course, paella. Eating a lunchtime menu is an excellent opportunity to devour freshly caught grilled or salt-baked fish. Be sure to sample the world famous wines and cavas of the Penedès. Catalonia is steeped in tradition with festivals, processions and celebrations occurring monthly.

Weather and climate

The Costa Dorada benefits from a mild Mediterranean climate of glorious sunshine and clear, vivid blue skies. The north-easterly winter winds and south-easterly summer winds keep humidity at a low and also remove any fog or mist. Winter temperatures are between 7-10ºC and 20-26ºC in summer, with inland temperatures 2-4 degrees lower. Most rainfall occurs in spring and autumn, with the occasional shower in summer.
