DO you know the important dates and public holidays in Spain? We’ve rounded up a list of them for you!
Whether you’re living in Spain or just here to visit, it’s important to add Spain’s public holidays and key dates in your diary or on the calendar, because, on some of these dates businesses and public offices will close or have reduced hours.
In general, regional Spanish holidays coincide with large Spanish festivals and can be a great time to visit a new city, try authentic Spanish food and see many Spanish traditions.
One of the favourite regional holidays in the capital, Madrid, is San Anton, which is significant for those who own pets. The celebrations are on Januray 17 and celebrate the Saint San Antonio Abad, patron saint of animals. On this day, you can see hundreds of animals converging in one square to be sprinkled with holy water!
