The climate of Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain)
Vitoria Gasteiz is the capital of the Basque Country region and is located in the Alava province in the northwestern part of Spain. After Bilbao it is the largest city in this autonomous region. In 2012 the city was voted the Green capital of Europe. The city was founded by the Visigoths in the 6th century AD on the remains of a Roman settlement. Several beautiful old buildings can be found in the city. Among the most beautiful buildings in the city is the Cathedral of Santa Maria. The best known museum in the city is the Artium museum. Vitoria Gasteiz has a moderate maritime climate with characteristics of a Mediterranean climate. However, this influence is very small. The climate here is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Because of this extremes in weather are uncommon. However, temperatures are much lower on average than in the more southerly and easterly located cities in Spain. During the coldest days of the year subzero temperatures (during the night) are not uncommon.
