in Barcelona as well!
I remember arriving at Cerveceria Catalana at 9:00 - the place was jammed ( we had to wait 40 minutes!) and they were hardly all tourists. As a matter of fact, we ended up having a conversation with some locals waiting in line, it was kind of funny - we spoke to them in Spanish, they spoke to us in English!

Bilboburgler is right, if you're coming in July, August or early Sep. it may be overwhelmingly hot in Andalucia. Unless you're from West Texas or Palm Desert you don't know what to expect.

If you're visiting small towns and it's not the weekend you may find restaurants closed by 11pm! I visited Ronda last year and by 10pm on a Sunday and Monday night most restaurants had already closed - and not just in the more "touristy" area of Ronda across the bridge by the bullring. Of course, it would be different on weekends. So I believe it's quite a generalization (by city and day of the week)to say that dinner starts around 11pm.

The best information I found for my trip to Madrid and other cities in Spain was at www.maribelsguides.com.

I loved Madrid in my two short visits there, and especially enjoyed flamenco at Casa Patas: www.casapatas.com.
