DST in Spain

All of Spain uses Daylight Saving Time (DST) during part of the year. The DST period starts on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October, together with most other European countries.

In the country's main part, Central European Time (CET) is used as standard time, while Central European Summer Time (CEST) is observed when DST is in force. The Canary Islands observe Western European Time (WET) as standard time and Western European Summer Time (WEST) as DST.

The switch times displayed above are for continental Spain. In terms of local time, the Canary Islands change their clocks 1 hour earlier.
