What is Día de Andalucía?

The Día de Andalucía is celebrated on February 28 because on this day in 1980 there was a referendum.  This is the day the Andalusian electorate voted and made Andalucia an autonomous community of Spain.  This afforded them full powers and their own government.

This is a day when the flag of Andalucía is flown high in town and sometimes from homes and balconies. Read more about the flag.

Celebrations on Día de Andalucía?

There are celebrations in each province and just about every town, big and small.  Many cultural events take place and often historical sites may be open to the public for free.  In Malaga it is a “white week”, so school is out all week.  In Costa Tropical, it is a holiday on the day.  Most of the main stores, shops, and businesses will be closed, excluding restaurants.
