Weather Overview for Galicia
Galicia is on the North West coast of Spain. To the Spanish, Galicia can sometimes be viewed as the rainy and wet region but this is not necessarily the case. With its warm Mediterranean climate Galicia is still a destination for an enjoyable holiday with a good selection of beaches and bays to choose from.
