Spain: Siesta Time

Jump to last reply

My wife and I plan to travel to Spain for the first time in April. We've heard a lot about siesta time and are just wondering what tourist-things you can/can't do during siesta time? We plan to visit Barcelona, Seville and Madrid ... do any museums, churches, tourist attractions etc. stay open during siesta time? Or should we just plan to relax for 3-4 hours and pick up again when siesta time is finished? Would be really grateful for any advice.
