It is believed that this is the place where King Ferdiand and Queen Isabella greeted Columbus when he first arrived back from his New World voyage in 1492. 

Casa Milà

Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera is the largest civil building designed by Antoni Guadi. The apartment block is one of Gaudi’s least colourful projects, however it is considered to be one of his most unconventional buildings as the structure does not feature a single straight line. La Pedrera was constructed between 1906 and 1910 and was Gaudi’s last work before devoting the rest of his life to the construction of the Sagrada Familia.

What’s the weather like in Barcelona the rest of the year

Where does this data come from

Weather data for Barcelona was collected from the MERRA-2 project from NASA, which used a climate model combined with historical data from weather stations around the world to estimate what the conditions were like for every point on the Earth.

For all data based on historical data, we’ve averaged the data from the past 11 years (2010-2020). For example, for the hourly temperature at 10am, we’ve looked at the temperature at 10am on every day in March (e.g., March 1, March 2, etc. in 2010, 2011, etc.) and took the arithmetic mean. We did not smooth the data, so for example, our daily temperature line will have some randomness due to the fact that weather is random in the first place.
