Spain's 2 cities in January, help me plan my time

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Europe in January, and I have roughly 4-6 extra days, and I would like to see visit Spain for the first time. Because of the time of year, I am only interested in cities, specifically Madrid and Barcelona. What are these places like in January? I love art and food and going out, and I am dying to go to the Prado and to see Guernica, but I am curious about some of the other attractions, such as parks, day trips, outdoor activities, etc., this time of year.

Specifically, would it be worth a day trip to Toledo from Madrid this time of year? Also, since I am assuming that a lot of the beaches in Barcelona will be less enjoyable this time of year, should I even go to Barcelona, with all its parks and outdoor activities, in January?

I would love to see both of these great cities if possible, and I could perhaps do 3 nights each place, but if I had to cut it down to 2 and 3, or 3 and 1, (or 2 and 2) with a flight home out of one city, what would you choose to do? I know there is are lots of forums about the perennial Barcelona v. Madrid debate, but I am specifically interested in what these places are like this time of year, and whether the season makes one place a higher priority than the other. Thanks!!!
