• Apart from the major centres, English is not widely spoken, so do make an effort to at least take a small guide book or app – the people are friendly but may just not understand you!
  • Spanish people love to swear! Seriously, sometimes you are lucky not to understand them but it is generally good natured.
  • With the exception of Barcelona and Madrid, the rest of Spain siesta between the hours of 2pm and 4pm, so we suggest you do the same!  The good news is that everything is open to late, late, late and it’s only the tourists who eat before 9pm.
