Public Holiday: Tuesday 12Oct. Fiesta Nacional de España is one of two “national days” of Spain and is held annually every 12 October on the day that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas in 1492.
This is a major “bridge holiday” for the Spanish, with heavy traffic as many travel to family gatherings. “Bridge holiday” means that if the public/bank holiday is on a Tuesday or a Thursday you can have a 4 day weekend.
This is called ‘hacer puente’ in Spanish which means ‘to make a bridge; ‘ they call it “puente del Pilar” (bridge of the Pillar). Many businesses will close on Friday or Saturday and not reopen until Wednesday.
‘Nuestra Señora del Pilar’ – ‘our Lady of the Pillar’ is the patroness virgin of Spain and of the Hispanic peoples and of the Civil Guard of Spain.
