Daily meteorological records for Barcelona, Spain, start unofficially in 1780. The records are of very good quality, although the metadata are far from complete. This study gives the general characteristics of the daily instrumental records, details of the data sources together with the reconstruction of the daily and monthly pressure series. In the second part of this paper, a separate time series made up of three (deterministic, periodic and random) components is analysed, and a methodological approach based on the cumulative deviation from the mean is then used to homogenize the monthly pressure series.
