Know Before Visiting
Mealtimes in Spain can be confusing. Restaurants are generally open from 1:30 p.m. to 4.:00 p.m. for lunch, and from 8:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. for dinner. Many stores close for lunchtime siesta (2 p.m. to 5 p.m.), as well as on Sundays and public holidays. A lot of businesses close for the whole month of August.
