Public holidays 2020 in Spain

Note: January 2nd, Ascension Day and Whit Monday are not systematically public holidays in Spain. Except for Madrid, the purely local public holidays are not indexed below. There are two or three of them in each city or village, which aren't so many, but if you travel, you might expect to spend the full year in public holidays…

For this last edition (in principle, I am retiring) of the “Calendar of holidays in Spain”, exceptionally, I will not show here pictures of coastal places, but of Spain where I live, and which I also love: Madrid and Castile La Mancha.
