Useful informationCommercial timetables

The commercial timetables change depending on the time of the year and the type of shop, but most of them open their doors between 9:00 and 10:00 h and close between 20:00 h and 22:00 h, with a break at midday between 13:00/14:00 h and 16:00/17:00 h.

The shops close on Sundays and bank-holidays during the winter time, but in the summer season most of them stay open also during these days.

Banks are open Monday to Friday between 08:30 h and 14:00 h.
