Public Holidays

In our part of Spain, just about everything closes for Sundays and Public Holidays, with the exception of Bars, Restaurants, and Filling stations – so if you’re arriving the previous day, make sure you either get your food shopping done that afternoon, or order a Breakfast Pack from us!

Also note that when a Bank Holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, many shops will also shut for the Monday or Friday. However, when it falls on a Sunday, they don’t take the Monday off.
