Holidays in Spain

The holidays in Spain are a mix of religious, national and regional holidays. Each municipality is allowed to have a maximum of 14 public holidays per year, of which at least two are chosen locally. Among the holidays celebrated all throughout Spain you will find New Year’s Day, Epiphany, Easter, Labor Day and Fiesta Nacional de Espana.

Often those holidays are celebrated with close family and great local food. It also means that shops might be closed and that restaurants have limited opening hours.
