Background Information

Administrative Division: For the purpose of public holidays, Spain is divided into seventeen autonomous communities (comunidades autónomas), and two African autonomous cities (ciudades autónomas). Their abbreviations are:  • Andalucía (AN), • Aragón (AR), • Asturias (O), • Balearic Islands (IB), • Basque Country (PV), • Canary Islands (CN), • Cantabria (S), • Castilla-La Mancha (CM), • Castilla y León (CL), • Catalonia (CT), • Ceuta (CE), • Extremadura (EX), • Galicia (GA), • La Rioja (LO), • Madrid (M), • Melilla (ML), • Murcia (MU), • Navarra (NA), • Valencia (VC),  as set out in ISO 3166-2:ES .  National and Regional Public Holidays: Spanish regions, towns, villages and cities have additional public holidays of their own. There is a base of, usually 9, public holidays that are common to all regions of Spain, plus Epiphany and Maundy Thursday which each region can replace with one or two region-specific public holidays. Regions also have the option of adding a regional public holiday, without removing any of the common ones, or Epiphany and Maundy Thursday.  Epiphany is, in theory, with Maundy Thursday, one of the 2 public holidays that each region can replace with another. However, in practice, over the last 30 years there has been only one occasion, in Catalonia, when Epiphany was not observed somewhere in Spain.  Maundy Thursday is usually not a public holiday in Catalonia.  Weekend Public Holidays: Public holidays that occur on a weekend are not systematically moved to the following Monday.  However, when a public holiday falls on a Thursday or Tuesday, it is common practice to "make the bridge" (hacer puente) by taking off the Friday or Monday so creating a very long weekend. When this happens you may find businesses running on short staff or smaller family run business closed for the full period.  Spain International Codes ES and ESP (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .es (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Spain information and news: Bank of Spain (Spain central bank), ASI Hot Spots (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Spain maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Spain), and Wikipedia (includes Spain commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).


Footnotes
*

Observance : Any entry in the Observance column indicates that, in Spain, the holiday may be regional or non-official or limited to certain religious and/or linguistic groups, or begin at a time other than midnight. Note that religious holidays are included only if they are national public holidays, or if the national labour code has specific holiday allowances for employees of specific religions.

**

Religious Holidays : Public holidays in Spain that are based on certain religious calendars may be subject to local variations due to differing interpretations between different religious authorities, or to seemingly arbitrary changes in the date a holiday is celebrated because it conflicts with another holiday that is based on another calendar, or because the day of the holiday is deemed inauspicious (bad luck). To find out more about these uncertainties, see the footnote below, if any, for each specific religion.

(2)

Muslim Holidays : Muslim bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Spain were evaluated using the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia which is used in Saudi Arabia and in most of the Persian Gulf States. Holidays may occur a day later in countries outside the Gulf region. The sunrises, sunsets, moon phases, moonrises and moonsets used in these calculations are based on the location of Mecca (latitude 21.42°N, longitude, 39.82°E, GMT+3 hours, no summer time rules).


Disclaimer
In many parts of the world, holidays are subject to arbitrary, last minute, changes by local authorities. While every effort has been made to present an accurate list of 2014 bank holidays, legal holidays and public holidays for Spain, we cannot accept any responsibility for any error or omission in the data presented above. You are therefore advised to verify the above dates with the embassy or consulate of Spain, before planning any trip to Spain.
