Nine of those are "fixed" National Fiestastwo are decided at regional level in the Canary Islands, then each island also has an additional day of it’s own, which in Tenerife’s case is 2 February for Candlemass – for the island’s patron’s day, the Virgen de la Candelaria, bringing the number of public holidays in 2019 to 12. Each municipality will then declare a further 2 local days (details to follow), making the total of 14. 

(The Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception) on 8 December, isn't a public holiday in 2019 as it already falls on a Sunday.
