Restoration of Independence Day in Portugal commemorates regained independence from Spain. Led by Portuguese nobles, on 1 December 1640, the revolt against the Spanish dynasty began. In 1580, when Portugal's only remaining prince died, the Spanish prince, Phillip II, overtook the country. The Spanish dynasty then ruled Portugal for 60 years until the revolt began in 1640.
Restoration of Independence Day is celebrated annually on 1 December. Since 2012, this holiday is no longer a public holiday as Portugal was forced to drop several public holidays in order to adhere to austerity measures.
