Siestas are great.
The siesta is one of the most famous aspects of Spanish life – that dead period in late afternoon when everything shuts down, in theory so people can go to sleep. The Siesta has existed for thousands of years and was previously regarded as a physical necessity rather than a luxury. While the traditional Spanish style siesta can last for up to two hours to avoid the hottest part of the day, there is actually a biological need for people in all climates to have a short rest in the afternoon to revive energy levels.
Siestas are often taken after a midday meal, so visit us at Bolillo Tortas for a torta before your siesta!
