Many shops, banks and offices will be closed this Friday 12 October for the celebration of Día de la Hispanidad, or Spain Day. The national public holiday commemorates the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus on 12 October 1492, something that has particular significance for Spain because it transformed the still developing modern nation into a global empire which lasted until 1898. To celebrate, many provincial capitals, including Santa Cruz in Tenerife, will hold a military parade, the main one being in Madrid’s Plaza de Colón which is attended by the Royal Family and the most important members of state including the Government and the majority of the Presidents of Spain’s autonomous regions. The full list of national, regional and local public holidays in Tenerife for 2018 is HERE.
