What should I pack for a holiday in Barcelona in February?

The Life of a Social Butterfly Whilst February is mild in Barcelona, it's worthwhile packing a light jacket and a hoodie to wear over holiday staples such as midi skirts and dresses. Similarly, a light scarf may be beneficial to keep away the occasional chill. Do not be deterred by the locals, who will be wearing numerous layers in comparison - the weather in February is likely to be much colder to locals than to other visitors from colder European countries!
