The findings are based on the average temperature recorded from 1981 to 2010 by the Agencia Estatal de Meteorologia (Aemet).
Aemet has also revealed the weather recorded from the start of December to the end of February has been the second warmest since the agency started keeping records in 1965.
The hottest winter remains that of 1989-1990.
This comes after December and January were the warmest they’ve been on record worldwide, reaching those of 2015-2016.
Spain has also had some surprisingly high temperatures this winter, such as 29.6 degrees Celcius at Valencia’s Airport and 31.9 degress Celcius in Tenerife.
