Spaniards have lunch around 2:00pm and dinner after 9:00pm. Most shops will close in the afternoon for 'siesta.' Evenings are long and can last until dawn. The locals have a strong sense of partying and the streets often stay animated until late into the night. Levels of eating, drinking and partying reach new heights during a festival or fiesta, and every woman, child, man and his dog gets in the spirit! Family remains the foundation of social organisation, although modernity has challenged those values to some extent.
