What is the weather like in gran canaria in march: Average weather March in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain
Weather in winter in Gran Canaria
Written by Jelena
We have been living in Gran Canaria from the end of October till the middle of April. The island is well known for its tiny temperature variations, which makes it perfect holiday destination. Gran Canaria ir well known because of the mild and warm winter weather.
When you ask what is the temperature like in Gran Canaria in winter time, you need to know that it’s usually quite different in southern and northern parts of the island. Mountains in the central part of Gran Canaria traps all the wind and South-West part is always warmer than the Nort-East.
Weather in South part of Gran Canaria
South resorts – Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles, Meloneras, Puerto Rico, Taurito, Arguineguin and Puerto de Mogan are known for the almost all year round sunshine. Rain is a rare guest here and temperature (+23-+30) is nice for sunbathing. That’s why it is a popular tourists destination. And that’s why if you come to Gran Canaria only for a week or two I highly recommend to stay in the South, to enjoy the Sun.
However, if you want to spend a warm winter, but not too hot one, if you like weather variations (some sunny days mixed with some rainy or windy ones), Las Palmas is a perfect destination. More North can be a little more cool.
Weather in North part of Gran Canaria
In winter in the North part of the island the temperature varies from +16-18°C to +24-25°C (based on our experience). More cool weather is in Agaete and more unpredictable is in Las Palmas.
However, when we came on the first day to Las Palmas, which was Autumn, 24th of October, we were shocked – + 32°C. We had to change all the children clothes immediately and were happy to use the conditioner in our rented car. Too hot! Temperature was reaching the same highs for almost a week. All the locals were surprised as well, they haven’t been experiencing such high temperatures at the end of October for many years. However after a week, weather changed a bit and it was easier to breath.
During the winter months, temperature was around +16 – +23 during the day. Every time we would head South, there would be from 2 to 5 degrees warmer. Locals in Las Palmas were telling us that they have never experienced such a cold winter before – “mucho frio!”. For us – it was perfect. Not too hot, with some hot days, not too cold.
It was interesting, that rain and strong wind was quite a guest in Las Palmas in Winter and Spring time. Less on Spring, of course. On one hand, it was good, because after some days of heat one usually wants some refreshment. On the other hand, it was a little bit disappointing than my mother came for two weeks and we had only two sunny days during that time.
From the middle of March it became warmer and warmer and the tourism season was already there.
How to dress?
On a warmer day: t-shirt, shorts or dress and long-sleeve shirt on top. Cooler day: trousers, long sleeve shirt and jumper. Must have all the time: sun-hat and sun-cream. Take a swimming suite for a beach, where it feels warmer every day (even the cooler ones) because of the sun. A coat in the evening was a must on most days, because of the wind or the rain. We lived next to the beach, so it always felt a little cooler at night.
If you are heading towards the mountains or the North part take some coat or jumper with you. If you go to Puerto de Las Nieves – take your jacket with you, sometimes it may be really cool there.

Capileira, Granada © Mark Chinn
In the heart of La Alpujarra and within the Sierra Nevada National Park, this small village in Granada province is 1,500 metres above sea level, with spectacular views of the Poqueira gorge and the peaks of Cerro Mulhacén and Pichacho Veleta from its viewpoints. The town is notable for its traditional whitewashed Andalusian houses and several heritage buildings, such as the church of Nuestra Señora de la Cabeza and the Pedro Antonio de Alarcón museum house.
This unique place, nominated as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, is 1,182 metres high. The typically reddish houses in the old part of this town create narrow streets that frequently open up to improvised viewpoints where you can see the landscape. The village of Albarracín has been built on the side of a mountain, and its peculiar hanging houses look out over the Gualaviar river, which almost completely surrounds the town. The protected landscape of the Pinares de Rodeno and several areas of cave paintings surround the town.

Tejeda, Canary Islands
This town is situated inside one of the largest volcanic craters in the Canary Islands. It is notable for its spectacular scenery, including Roque Nublo, one of the symbols of Gran Canaria. This is a monolith that was created during the volcanic processes that took place on the island. Just a few kilometres from here is Roque Bentayga, a larger natural monument that was once a sacred place for the native people of the Canary Islands. Its natural beauty combines the historical aesthetics of its white buildings and traditional roofs to make Tejeda one of the places where the aesthetics of the Canary Island villages are preserved.

Its old town, known as “El mercadillo”, has vernacular mansions, palaces and churches. It also has a famous spa, which uses water from the Miera river.
Plaza Mayor in Almagro, Ciudad Real
Almagro, Castilla – La Mancha
The history of this city, whose Arabic name alludes to the red clay used to construct some of the buildings, is tied to the theatre. The Corral de Comedias is the only theatrical courtyard that has remained intact and active, providing interesting dramatised tours since the early 17th century. It is worth visiting the National Theatre Museum and attending the International Classical Theatre Festival, which attracts hundreds of tourists every year. The Plaza Mayor is also exceptional and is one of the most beautiful squares in Spain, with its columns and green-painted windows.
Frías, Castilla y León
Situated on a rock on the edge of the Ebro river, Frías is the smallest village in Spain. The village is outlined by the Humión peak, the tallest in the Montes Obarenes Nature Reserve. Its architecture mixes Roman and Medieval elements, most notably on Los Velasco castle and the church of San Vicente Martír. In between these buildings, hanging houses crowd together.
Plaza in Chinchón, Madrid © Turismo de Chinchón
Chinchón, Region of Madrid
Despite being only 50 kilometres from the capital city, Chinchón is one of the most picturesque villages in the region. Its Plaza Mayor, with its irregular shape and medieval style, with its urban landscape of intricate alleyways and clusters of houses grouped on hills, makes it an essential trip. Its most notable tourist attractions include the church of Nuestra Señora de La Asunción, with a Goya canvas in pride of place over the main altar, the Clock Tower, the Lope de Vega Theatre, and the castle of Los Condes. The monastery of San Agustín and the convent of Las Clarisas.
