The climate of Fianarantsoa (Madagascar)
Fianarantsoa is a large city centrally located in Madagascar at an altitude of 1,200 meters. Fianarantsoa is located in the province of Fianarantsoa of which it is also the capital. Ranomafana National Park is just a few hours away by car. The city is known for two things: its educational system and its wines. The most beautiful part of the city is the old city on the hill top, mainly because several churches can be admired here and because of the spectacular views over Fianarantsoa. Besides vines quite a number of tobacco plants are cultivated here. Fianarantsoa has a warm maritime climate with high precipitation figures during the beginning and the end of the year. The rest of the year is quite dry in comparison to other coastal towns. Because of its situation at a higher altitude it is slightly colder here than in other places in Madagascar. During the local winter nights may be cold. During the rainy period there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. The southeasterly trade wind strongly influences the climate of Fianarantsoa.
