  • 2 February – (Tenerife’s own day to honour patron, Virgen de la Candelaria)
  • 1 April – (Jueves Santo/Maundy Thursday)
  • 2 April – (Viernes Santo/Good Friday)
  • 1 May – (Fiesta del Trabajo/Workers’ Day)

  • 1 November – (Todos los Santos/All Saints Day)
  • 6 December – (Día de la Constitución Española/Spanish Constitution Day)

  • 25 December – (Natividad del Señor/Christmas Day)

The calendar of holidays for 2021 does not include May 30, Canary Islands Day, the commemoration day of the Autonomous Community, as it falls on a Sunday.

There’s a legal right to days off on public holidays in Spain (there's no such right in Britain), however, you should note that the official working week in Spain consists of 6 days, Monday to Saturday, inclusive. To make up the 14 days public holidays decreed by law, two additional days are added specific to each municipal council area (to be advised).
