10 Things everyone should know before traveling to Spain

Easyvoyage Logo By Editorial Team of Easyvoyage | Slide 1 of 10: You will find that siestas are still a prominent tradition all across Spain. While we may look at a siesta like a cat-nap, it is one of the most important and famous aspects of the Spanish lifestyle. For example, in 2015 the mayor allowed citizens in the town of Ador to have the right to an afternoon nap. A siesta is divided into two periods. The first period is dedicated to small private businesses which is typically from 2pm until 5pm. The second is for bars and restaurants which usually lasts from 4pm until 8pm. However, timing often varies and depends on how long the owner wants to sleep for.
