National Andalucia Day
« on: January 30, 2011, 02:55:01 PM »
I'll be in Granada from 24th Feb. up to beginning of March. I heard that the 28th Feb. is the National Andalucia Day. Has anybody heard if there are any fiestas or commemorations during this day? I ask because the hotel wants to charge me more for certain days in February. Is this correct? Thanks

John

The Día de Andalucía ("Day of Andalusia" or "Andalusia Day") is celebrated February 28 and commemorates the February 28, 1980 referendum on the Statute of Autonomy of Andalusia, in which the Andalusian electorate voted for the statute that made Andalusia an autonomous community of Spain.

In some cities, especially in the Malaga area, schools are closed for a Semana Cultural ("cultural week"), also known as Semana Blanca.

Don't expect discount prices in hotels around the 28th because there is high demand. In January and February there are currently very low prices in Hotels but not on this weekend.
