La Coruna is in a rugged corner of Spain with much of the land being over 500 metres above sea level. The climate is temperate maritime and heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. It does display some characteristics of a Mediterranean climate, but the autumn and winter are often unsettled and unpredictable with strong winds and lots of rainfall between October and April caused by Atlantic depressions. The Ocean and cloud cover does keep temperatures mild and frost is very rare.
In the summer La Coruna is quite dry and sunny with only occasional rainfall, and temperatures are warm but rarely uncomfortably hot thanks to the sea’s cooling influence. Spring is usually cool and fairly calm.
