It varies from region to region but in Malaga it seems it will be 16-19 February.
I've got an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one!

We are in Fuengirola and the week always includes Día de Andalucía which is 28 February, next year it is a Sunday, so Semana Blanca will be either the week before or the week after. But, really need to know which one. Anybody ??
Thanks, Sharon

My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.

Half term week for schools.
So nothing happens except the mothers have to drag their kids around with them when they are out shopping.

Unfortunately official school calendar is normally published at the end of May beginning of June. As the 28th is a Sunday, the official holiday has already been marked for the Monday, so my guess is that Semana Blanca will be from 29th to 3rd of March, although it's a bit ridiculous as they will start Easter holidays on 18th of March.
The Semana Blanca is only in the province of Malaga and is 4 days (3 holidays + 1 teachers day) + the Día de Andalucía.
