The climate of Alicante (Spain)
Alicante is located on the Costa Blanca in the Alicante province in the autonomous region of Valencia. Alicante is a large city, the second largest of the region after Valencia. Alicante is an old city which was founded in the 3rd century BC by the Carthaginians. Although it is an old city the center is not that big. However, several beautiful churches and castles dating back to medieval times can be found here. Several unique museums can be found here as well, among them is a museum exhibiting Nativity scenes. Alicante has a pleasant Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm and pleasant summers that allows you to go sunbathing from May till October. Temperatures may even rise up to 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit) in December. Alicante is surrounded by hills. Because of this the city has a micro climate with very low precipitation figures all year round.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but dont present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures dont always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
