Climate of Barcelona - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rhodes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I've been to both places in June and for me - Barcelona, not a contest. Cooler summers, more summer rainfall, cooler in winters.

Rhodes' precipitation pattern looks like California. Barcelona looks very different even though they're both Mediterranean. I imagine it affects the vegetation a lot; with barcelona looking a bit more like a typical temperate climate.

My vote goes for Barcelona, for the more pleasant summer temperatures and you also have a higher chance to see snowflakes in winter than in Rhodes.

Barcelona is not nearly as warm as it is rumored to be. When you drive the Spanish Costas up from Alicante during fall, one sees a dramatic difference between the south of Spain with its abundance of palm trees, baskong in Indian summer, and Catalunya with a majority deciduous trees already half bald or with autumn colors...so for me it's Rhodes at 36į latitude, no contest...
