Do you know what Siesta means?
Siesta is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal.
Now, imagine the Short nap transforms to long sleepy August!
August is the Siesta month in Spain, especially in Barcelona. When all the tourists are coming to see the capital of Catalunya, all the habitants run out from the city and hot sun.
You should be ready that some restaurants or agencies will not be open during this month or their work hours is limited. Especially the renting process starts to be really slow, because even the owner cannot answer in time. Everyone is on holidays and rest.
We, Next Door BCN, is open every Monday – Friday from 10am to 8pm and we have lunch time from 2pm to 4pm.
