School holidays in Spain in 2019-20

Are you or one of your family members attending one of The Best International Schools in Spain?  Learn more about the school holidays in Spain!

Spanish school holidays are set by the regional autonomous communities. Not every region will have its holidays at exactly the same time, although differences for the main holidays are usually small and will take place within a set time period.
Unlike many European countries, there are no half-term weeks off.
If your child attends an international school, check their school holiday calendar.

Note: When a national holiday is not mentioned in the list below, means it’s during the weekend or it’s already included in a school break period of time (ex. Immaculate Conception, St.Stephen’s Day, Maundy Thursday)
