  • 6 January, Epifanía del Señor (Epiphany / Three Kings Day)
  • 2 FebruaryVirgen de la Candelaria (Candlemas)
  • 9 April, Jueves Santo (Easter Thursday)

  • 7 December, (in lieu) Día de la Constitución (Constitution Day)
  • 8 December, Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception)
  • 25 December, Natividad del Señor (Christmas Day)
And as well as these 12 days established by law [1], there are also a further 2 days given each year as local holidays, which differ from one district to the next.
