If you’re planning how best to use up your holiday entitlement in 2015, or simply trying to work out the most economical times to travel, then you’ll need to take into account the dates for Spain public holidays 2015.

In Spain there are national holidays, regional holidays and local holidays. The dates on which the national and regional holidays are to fall are communicated each year via an Official State Bulletin or BOE  (CLICK TO ACCESS).  Among other regulations, this Bulletin specifies which of the national holidays are obligatory and which are optional on a regional basis, as well as defining the rules surrounding those days which can be celebrated the following day in the case when the holiday itself falls on a Sunday.

Don’t forget that most towns in Spain will also have two local holidays per year when they celebrate their feria and Saint’s day. You can find out more information about these days on your local Ayuntamiento website or by checking the Calendario Laboral for your town on Seguridad Social’s website (CLICK TO ACCESS).
