La siesta, Español Santillana

Español Santillana High School Level 2 Activity

La siesta

In Spain, people typically have lunch at 2:00 p.m.  In smaller cities and towns, stores and businesses close at lunchtime.  Some people return home to eat, while others choose to go to restaurants.  Businesses reopen around 5:00 p.m.  In larger cities, the siesta is not practiced as frequently and many businesses remain open.  Most stores and businesses are closed on Sundays, even in major cities, because it is considered a day of rest.
