On the 6th of December Spain celebrates the adoption of the new Spanish Constitution in 1978. This day marked the transition to the democratic values of the society that had been under dictatorship for almost 40 years.
According to the Constitution, Spain is a parliamentary democratic monarchy that declares the predominance of human rights and freedoms, practices principles of separation of the State and the Church and offers wide freedom of self-government to its regions and provinces.
The Constitution Day has no special festivities associated with it neither in Barcelona nor in Catalonia or other autonomous regions of Spain. It is simply an additional public holiday.
