National and Public Holidays in Andalucia

When are the National and Public Holidays in Andalucia in 2024?

People in Andalucia will enjoy 12 public holidays in 2024, 10 of which are national holidays. Four of those ten fall on a Monday or a Friday allowing workers to take three-day weekend breaks. Two others fall on a Tuesday or Thursday so that by taking one day’s leave, workers can have a four-day break.

Read on to get the exact details on the public holiday dates in Andalucia in 2024!

What are Puentes?

You will often hear the expression ‘taking a puente’, literally ‘taking a bridge’.

The term refers to the Spanish habit of taking an extra day’s holiday if a national or public holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday thus creating a four day long weekend. Individuals can take advantage of puentes by taking one day leave. More confusingly, each city, town and village and, in some cases, individual businesses, can also choose whether to extend a national, regional or public holiday by allowing puentes. On those occasions, some businesses, banks, shops and so on, will be open, while others will be closed.
