Best places to stay in Spain in March

  • Valencia

  • Seville

  • Cadiz

  • Málaga

  • Ronda

  • Mallorca

March is a great month to visit Spain, especially if you’re looking for a more relaxed experience with fewer people, and if you want to save money. During this month flight tickets are half the price compared to the peak season and you can save money on your holiday home in Spain too. 

Depending on where you choose to go, the weather can be pleasantly warm. That’s why we recommend visiting the south of Spain, the cities along the Mediterranean coast and the Islands to experience the best weather.


Las Fallas, Valencia

Valencia is the third-largest city in Spain and is the perfect place to stay for a combination of culture, art and beaches. The city is also famous for its unique festivals all-year-round. In fact, one of the largest festivals in Spain, Las Fallas, is held during the month of March. 

Las Fallas de Valencia is an annual celebration of the coming of spring. You can expect fireworks, live music, and traditional costumes. Perhaps the true focal point is the hundreds of towering cartoonish monuments. During the final night of Las Fallas, the monuments are set on fire and burned to the ground - making it a spectacular night. Las Fallas is usually held from mid-March until the beginning of April.

During March in Valencia, temperatures will reach an average high of 18ºC during the day and the average temperature is 13ºC, so remember to pack a coat or jacket. 


Semana Santa, Sevilla

One of the most famous and traditional Spanish festivals is Semana Santa which takes place during Easter in Seville. Semana Santa, also named Holy Week, begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Sunday every year. The week consists of processions where enormous floats are carried around the streets by teams of bearers followed by a crowd committed to that particular church's precession. Thousands of people line the streets trying to get a glimpse of the processions. Some of which can be dated back to the 17th century, each showing a small part of the Easter story.   

March is one of the best months to visit Seville. Average temperatures are around 15ºC but will normally reach more than 20º during the day. During the summer it will be too hot to walk around in the city centre, and you may not enjoy what Seville has to offer as much. Stay in Seville and explore the Catedral de Sevilla, Real Alcázer, Plaza de España, and the old narrow stress, the Barrio de Santa Cruz,  are amazing places to visit during this time. 


Flamenco, Jerez

In the province of Cadiz, the Jerez Flamenco Festival is held annually in March. Singing, dancing, and guitars dominate the streets of Jerez, and it creates a unique atmosphere in the city. People arrive from all over the world to experience the best flamenco guitar players and dancers in Spain, as well as taste the famous sherry in traditional bodegas

Like Seville, Cadiz is pleasant to visit during this time, and it makes perfect sense to go to The Plaza de San Juan de Dios - A 16th-century square and also the heart of the city, because of its proximity to the port. Take a deep dive into ancient history and visit the Roman theatre in Cadiz. This theatre dates back to the 1st century BC, which is the oldest in Spain as well as one of the largest with the capacity to hold 20,000 people. What's more, is that the tour of the museum and theatre are free. 


Caminito del Rey, Malaga

Take a trip to the capital of Costa del Sol, Málaga. It has a vibrant city life atmosphere and areas around the city are also worth exploring too. For example, The Alcazaba, which is a palatial fortification built in the 11th-century. The Alcazaba is one of Málaga’s most important landmarks and was built by the Hammudid dynasty. 

As well as other cities in Spain, Málaga has a Roman theatre, which is the oldest construction in the city. The theatre is actually placed directly in the heart of the city and lays at the foot of the Alcazaba fortress, so it is obvious to kill two birds with one stone.  

If you are not scared of heights, the famous El Caminito del Rey brings stunning views and an amazing experience. Explore the area around Málaga also known as The King’s Pathway. The walkway is pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardeles, and is definitely worth a visit.    

The average temperature during the day is 18ºC, so a walk on the beaches around Málaga wouldn't hurt either.


Puente Nuevo, Ronda

If you want to experience a spectacular sight, Ronda is the perfect place. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and is a popular day trip for people renting a holiday home on the Costa del Sol.

Of all the things to see in Ronda, the most famous sight is The Puente Nuevo, "new bridge", which was built in 1793. From here, you have amazing views over the El Tajo Gorge. We recommend walking down along the Camino de Los Molinos to get the best view of the bridge.  

Additionally, Ronda has one of the oldest and most picturesque bullrings in Spain. In 1785, Jose Martin Aldehuela, the architect who also built the Puente Nuevo, finished the Real Maestranza bullring, which can hold up to 5000 spectators.  


Cala Agulla, Mallorca

Spring is a great month to stay in Mallorca. During March, the average rainfall is low and you get seven hours of sunshine. The average temperature during the day is 18ºC so it's also worth exploring the beautiful beaches on the island

If you love food as much as we do, we recommend attending Port Adriano’s Street Food Festival. Port Adriano will be filled with vintage caravans, with various types of food: eco-food. vegetarian, creative food, Tex-Mex and much more.

If you’re in need for speed, the three-day tour Classic Rally Mallorca is definitely worth it. Rally drivers from all over Europe take part in this race, and they showcase a wide range of vintage cars. The Classic Rally is held annually in March.

If you are looking for a holiday to Spain in March, you will find something for everyone. From vibrant cities with traditional festivals to coastal destinations, warm enough to spend the day at the beach. Where will you go this March?
