NB Not all are of course public holidays. I’ve starred the ones which I believe are holidays.
It is important to remember that if a holiday falls on a Thursday or a Tuesday then some businesses and schools will ‘bridge’ the weekend i.e. close for the Friday or the Monday as well.
Good Friday this year was on the 10th April, next year it will be on the 2nd April and the following year on April 22nd.
The fiesta at the Holy Cross is on the first weekend in May and the Romeria for San Isidro on the following Saturday.
