Spain Public Holidays 2022 (Official List) Expat Tips

The official list of Spain's public and bank holidays for 2022 was published in the Official State Gazette (BOE) on Thursday, October 21.

In 2022, there will be a total of eight national holidays that can be enjoyed by all of the autonomous communities.

Typically the work calendar will have eight national holidays, with each autonomous region having their own independent holidays.

Local councils will also submit at least two further public holidays, meaning that employees in Spain will get to enjoy about 14 public holidays each year.

In Spain it is traditional for public holidays to be called 'Red Days', this is because it was customary to mark them in red on the calendar.
