Constitution Day in Spain

December 6th is Constitution Day in Spain (Día del Constitución) and is a national holiday. Most businesses will be closed, however, restaurants and cafes are likely to be open for business. Local schools (both Spanish and international) are also closed on this day, so all the kids will be out and about. Some businesses take advantage of this opportunity and remain open, so call before you head out.


On December 6th, 1978 Spain adopted the National Constitution and made this date Constitution Day in Spain as well as a national holiday. This is an important day for Spain and it marks the start of a democratic government after the dark period of Franco´s regime.

December 6th is also regarded as the start of the December holidays and is often celebrated in conjunction with the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th, which is also a national holiday. Although technically December 7th is a working day, some businesses (and many schools) take this day off, creating a "puente" (bridge). This year (2010) December 6th is on a Monday and December 8th is a Wednesday so most people get a 5-day weekend!

If you live in Marbella or are staying these extra days, you have a nice opportunity to take a short excursion or quick getaway from Marbella.
