National Day - Spain

National Day - Spain

Date:                     Monday, October 12, 2020

Spain and the Spanish community in Ghana celebrate National Day on October 12.

This is the day in 1492 when Christopher Columbus discovered America and the day which is dedicated to Nuestra Señora del Pilar, Our Lady of the Pillar, the patron saint of all Hispanic peoples and of the Spanish Civil Guard.

The day is celebrated in Latin America as the Día de la Hispanidad and is known as Columbus Day in the United States, to celebrate his discovery of the New World.

October 12 has been officially observed as Spain’s Fiesta Nacional since 1987, by a law which describes it as a celebration of political cooperation, of cultural heritage and the affirmation of state identity and the special national quality of all Spaniards. It is a public holiday across the country.

The National Day is celebrated with a by-invitation-only reception at the Residence of Spain.
