Catalonia announces the Work Calendar for 2021

2021 Europe

There will be a total 12 work-free days observed across this north-eastern Spanish region next year, with three of the days falling on a  weekend – Labour Day, National Day of Catalonia and Christmas Day both fall on a Saturday.

In total, citizens can look forward to four long weekends in 2021. As Constitution Day falls on a Monday and Immaculate Conception Day two days later, we recommend using a day of holiday leave on the ‘holiday aqueduct’ of Tuesday December 7th to create a five-day break in the run-up to Christmas – book now to avoid disappointment!

As usual, the list of regional holidays will be bolstered by two municipal level holidays. Each council can decide and submit their choice for the additional holidays.

The public holidays agreed for next year at the community level will be:

Friday, January 1st, New Year; Wednesday, January 6th, Epiphany; April 2nd, Good Friday; April 5th, Easter Monday; Saturday, May 1st, Labor Day; Thursday June 24th, St. John’s Day; Saturday September 11th, National Day of Catalonia; Tuesday October 12th, National Day of Spain; Monday, November 1st, All Saints; Monday, December 6th, Day of the Spanish Constitution; Wednesday December 8th, Day of the Immaculate Conception; Saturday, December 25th, Christmas Day.
