Can someone put together a calendar of holidays in Spain for pilgrims to use as part of their planning?

I’ve never gotten stuck, but it seems that, once or twice, posters are caught trying to find beds only to discover that they are in the middle of a local or religious holiday.

If I had any internet skills at all, I’d do it myself but, for me, this would be a project that could take years, lol!

Just a thought.
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

New Original Camino Gear Designed Especially with The Modern Peregrino In Mind!
Speaking of which - tomorrow is a holiday in Galicia: May 17 is Galician Literature day.

Grocery stores will/may be closed, so if you're in Galicia right now you may want to go shopping before things close! Cafes and restaurants should still be open.
What about Pilgrim House? 😀
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Wakey, wakey!
As is clear from above residents, we from foreign parts need to smarten up if we wish to organise our plans to fit in.
Yes, fit in.
Not beat, not superimpose, just simply be aware.
Learn proper bathroom protocol on the Camino and share this info with other pilgrims.
