Keep up to date with your local and national holidays

Living in Spain can offers you a more relaxed lifestyle, fantastic weather, food and plenty of culture. As if this wasn’t enough, you also enjoy the most bank holidays in Europe with a whole host of national and local holiday days to experience.

The holiday days are a great excuse for a party and a fantastic part of Spanish life, but it can be hard to keep track of when they are and what this means in terms of shop opening times, parades and even road closures for parades. If there is a holiday on a Thursday or a Tuesday, the Spanish like to take a “Puente” or a bridge day to take them to the weekend, so you can be caught out by finding the shops closed for several days in a row. Website AngloInfo have produced a very useful list of Spanish public holidays, we’d suggest that you go through and mark them in the diary in advance so you can make sure you’ve got the cupboards stocked and can take full advantage of the party!
