Red Days 2019

Red Days in Spain are like Bank Holidays in the UK, but they tend to have more of them. Each region can sometimes have their own special days too. Below is a list of all the National Red Days, and some that are local to the Torrevieja or Valencia Regions.

On these days, you can expect banks to be closed, as well as most of the smaller Spanish shops and businesses, but all the restaurants remain open - it's recommended to book though, as they can become busier on Red Days and sometimes offer different menus.

The supermarkets, if open, can sometimes have shorter hours, so it’s worth checking before you travel too far.
