The date is a fiesta across the region of Andalucía
Today, February 28, is the Día de Andalucía, and is a fiesta in the region.
It marks the date in 1980 when a referendum was held on the Statute of Autonomy for the region, in which the people of Andalucía voted to become an autonomous community in Spain.
Many balconies will see the Andalucía flag on show today, and there are several annual competitions and fiestas held in towns and villages across the region. Many museums, such as the Granada Science Park, offer free entry today.
