Alicante and Murcia are one of the sunniest cities

Alicante and Murcia are one of the sunniest cities of Europe


A study has proven that six of the ten sunniest cities in Europe are in Spain. These cities include Seville, Alicante, Murcia.
They came to this conclusion after comparing the data from World Weather online.

The average number of hours of sunshine per week and month was taken into account. So not from a promotional campaign of the Spanish tourist office :-). The other cities are in Italy and France.

Of course, we would have thought this, but this has now been proven with unbiased data
We already wrote it in other pages :Costa Blanca is very sunny with its Mediterranean climate.
All year round with little reason.
In addition, almost every day sun. Seldom frost in winter.
It’s hot there in summer . But not extreme.
Due to the presence of the Mediterranean Sea.
They are mild dry winters. But also warm and dry summers. So ideal for us Western Europeans.

Alicante and Murcia are one of the sunniest cities.

The absolute winner in first place is the city of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. This with 349 hours of sunshine per month.

Also many historical sites and museums.
It is a living city with many bars and restaurants.
Of course also a beautiful marina.
So something for everyone.
