During the summertime, we would really recommend staying away from places such as Madrid, Seville not just because there is no access to the sea but also because the temperature in such areas can get over 40 C which due to the very dry air will feel like 50 C. Thus, pack your suitcases and head to the coastal areas such as Barcelona, Malaga, Valencia. The weather here also can get super hot however at least you will be able to refresh yourself by swimming in the sea and also the heat will not feel as strong as in the areas of the middle of the Spain.
