The 7 most important national holidays in Spain


New Year – Año Nuevo

On 1 January, Spain kicks off the new year with a really cool tradition: a grape pops into your mouth every time the bell rings at midnight – bringing good luck for the next twelve months. Who wouldn’t want to start the new year with so much fun?

Three Kings – Día de los Reyes Magos

6 January is the absolute highlight of the Christmas season. Imagine standing on the street corner and watching the Three Wise Men parade past on magnificently decorated floats, throwing sweets into the crowd. And yes, the presents the next morning come from them, not Father Christmas!

Good Friday – Viernes Santo

On this day, impressive processions parade through the streets, a sight that is sure to mesmerise you. The atmosphere is reverent, the artwork on the streets breathtaking – a must to feel the cultural depth of Spain.

Assumption of the Virgin Mary – Asunción de la Virgen

On 15 August, the whole of Spain celebrates the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. On this day, the streets are filled with processions, music and dancing. It is a perfect time to experience the deep religious roots and at the same time the joie de vivre of the Spanish.

Spain’s National Day – Fiesta Nacional de España

On 12 October, the whole of Spain celebrates its diversity and history. In Madrid in particular, you can experience the spectacular military parades. It is a day full of pride and joy, where you can feel the unity and cultural richness of the country.

All Saints’ Day – Día de Todos los Santos

On 1 November, Spain honours the deceased in a way that is truly touching. Families decorate the graves of their loved ones with flowers and candles – a day of remembrance that shows how deeply family ties are rooted in Spanish culture.

Constitution Day – Día de la Constitución

6 December is a day that celebrates Spain’s path to democracy. It is an opportunity to learn more about Spain’s recent history and celebrate the values of freedom and equality that characterise the country today.
