Just a reminder that next Monday, 15 August, is a public holiday for Asunción (Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven), the fiestas patronales for the whole island, and the focal point of the celebrations is the veneration of the Virgin in Candelaria itself – see post HERE. Banks, most offices and many shops will be closed. For a full list of 2016′s public holidays, please see HERE.
