Concept of time in Spain

 

The notion of time in Spain can be quite different than in the northern / eastern European countries .

First , be aware that the nightlife here does not begin until at least 22:00 and that's a very early start .

 

If you want to go clubbing , then in general the people go inside the club no earlier than 00.30u until 01:00 .

 

If you want to have dinner with friends , have a late lunch because dinner does not start before 22:00 .

Besides, in Spain is almost no one on time .

It's ok to be . 30 minutes late

So if you have agreed with your Spanish friends keep this in mind and do not go if he / she does not arrive on time !

 

During a siesta , which can happen between 14:00 to 17:00 , in Spain , most shops and businesses closed.

You can not really appreciate a siesta until you visit Andalusia , where the unbearable heat prevents you from doing something , or visiting .

You can actually finally understand what the useful and life-saving power of a siesta ! In Spain the weekend starts early .

 

Most companies usually end on Friday in the early afternoon ( 14:00 to 15:00 ) , so be prepared that you will not be able to do anything officially at that time .

Also, banks are not really that hard in Spain .

If you want to visit a bank do it between 8:00 to 14:00 .

Outside these times they are normally closed .

ATMs are available 24 -hour , though.
