Galicia has an North Atlantic climate due to its western and northern coastline that becomes more mediterranean further inland.

Galicia can be a wet and humid region in winter although it's generally relatively mild. Inland, and especially in mountainous areas, winters are however colder. So you will need to wrap up warm and wear water-proof clothing.

Summers which are the best time to visit Galicia are usually hot and drier especially in the more sheltered southern part of the Rias Baixas. Inland temperatures in places like Ourense frequently soar to 30ºC or above. It is still advisable to bring a warmer change of clothing if staying out late.

The annual average temperature for the whole of Galicia is about 14ºC so generally temperatures are much more comfortable than many parts of southern Spain. Generally you can expect pretty good weather and pleasent temperatures from March through to the end of October where normally during the day you can walk around with shorts and light clothing. Don't forget the sunglasses,sun tan cream and light raincoat just in case.
