Timetables in Spain! Very difficult to understand for foreigners visiting the country.

If people in Europe usually have lunch at 13:00 and have dinner at 20:00 in Spain people have lunch at 14: 00/14: 30 and have dinner at 21: 30/22: 00.
There are also variations depending on the different geographical area: the south has always been late in their schedules, especially in summer.
The schedule of Public Administration and Banks is from 8:00 to 15:00. However
Not all Spaniards take a nap, private enterprise has schedules that extend late into the evening, so that significantly delays dinner time.

Many urban Spaniards complain of a never-ending workday that begins in the morning but is interrupted by a traditional late-morning break and then interrupted again by the midday lunch. If workers return to their desks at 4 p.m. (lunch starts at 2), many people say, they end up working well into the evening, especially if the boss takes a long break and then works late.

But the question is, when the Spaniards sleep? On weekends, the streets are filled with young people till small hours, families watch series and TV shows, the last cinema-show it is around 23:30 and theatres begin one or two hours later than the rest of Europe …
The Spaniards probably sleep fewer hours than their European neighbours!!!

Horarios! Ese gran desconocido para los extranjeros que visitan nuestro país.

Si en Europa se come a las 13:00 y se cena a las 20:00 en España se come a las 14:00/14:30 y se cena a las 21:30/22:00.
Existen variaciones según diferentes zonas geográficas: el sur siempre ha sido más tardío en sus horarios, sobre todo en verano.
El horario de administración y bancos es de 8:00 a 15:00 con horario continuo.
No todos los españoles duermen siesta, la empresa privada tiene horarios que se prolongan hasta altas horas de la tarde, por lo que se retrasa sensiblemente la hora de cena.

Pero la pregunta es, ¿cuándo duermen los españoles? Los fines de semana los jóvenes, las calles se llenan de jóvenes que regresan a casa con el sol, las familias velan delante de series y concursos televisivos, las terrazas de los cafes animan las noches de verano hasta altas horas de la madrugada, las últimas sesiones de los cines empiezan hacia las 23:30 y los teatros empiezan una o dos horas más tarde que el resto de Europa…
Los españoles duermen seguramente menos horas que sus vecinos europeos!!!
