The Canary Island Day 30 of May

Canary Islands Day, celebrated every May 30, is a date of special relevance for the Canary archipelago. This holiday throughout the Canary Islands commemorates the anniversary of the first session of the Canary Islands Parliament, a crucial event that took place on May 30, 1983, in the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This session marked the beginning of a new era of self-government and autonomy for the islands. The establishment of the Parliament of the Canary Islands was possible thanks to the Statute of Autonomy of the Canary Islands, approved in 1982. This statute, in line with other statutes of the autonomous communities of Spain, granted the Canary archipelago a greater capacity for self-management within the framework of the Spanish State.
