Barcelona has a maritime Mediterranean climate. You can expect very pleasant weather during the day. In the end of March/ beginning of April the average maximum temperature lies around 19–20°C (66–68°F) and average minimum temperature is around 13–14°C (55–57°F).

Bring an umbrella just in case since there might be rains during this period. Plan on layering your clothes as during the day it is nice and warm, but sometimes it can be a bit chilly in the evening. With a water temperature of around 14.0°C (57.2°F), there is no need to bring swimwear.
