Oct 12 - National Day of Spain holiday

Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

It's a national holiday, so all sorts of services would be affected - government offices, businesses, transportation schedules, etc. You would need to check first, if you are relying on any particular shop or service to be functioning.
The Castle in Burgos. It's where we actually found out that October 12 was a Spanish holiday! 😊 At that time, it was also a US holiday. We hiked up to visit the castle and found it closed. Still a nice walk up and perfect place to have our picnic lunch and take a few photos of the cathedral below.
