This is a repeat of an earlier post but still most relevant.

November 1, All Saints' Day, is a holiday observed in both France (Toussaint) and Spain (Día de todos los Santos). Special masses are held. Many families travel during this time to pay homage to their dead relatives. Hence roads and transport may be extra busy.

Most businesses and services, but not all, will be closed on this day; generally a few restaurants and bars stay open. Banks and postal services will be closed.

Thus many people will be traveling at this time and hotels will be busy.

I’ve booked a 5-day ‘immersion’ language course in Malaga for w/c November 1st which has just turned into an extra-intensive immersion course as five days work has been compressed into four.

This is also a national holiday in Portugal so, if walking in Portugal at that time, be prepared.
