From THE UK about SPAIN

“Having worked in Spain a few times this year I have noticed a distinct difference in the standard working hours; In Spain it is more common to work for longer in the morning followed by a longer lunch break. The Spanish lunch time I find is more of a social occasion where everyone eats together away from the office. In the UK, a shorter lunch break (max 1 hr) is usual and it is common for staff to eat at their desks. “
