When to go
Although the weather is pleasant most of the year, because of its elevated position Madrid can experience extreme and rapidly changing conditions. The best times to visit are spring, early summer and autumn as the temperatures are pleasant and the city not overly crowded. The Madrileños tend to leave the city during the high summer heat of late-July to August. Over winter, visitors can expect clear days with low temperatures and occasional snow.
