I was born in Madrid, I am not Gato though. My favourite food is Spanish omelette with onions! On weekends I love hiking in the mountains of Madrid. I’m a big movie buff. One of my favourite Spanish movies is Primos, have you seen it?

Hello Spaneasiers! How are you doing? We hope you are studying a lot for your final exams, but especially for the Spanish ones. As we know that you are probably a little stressed, today we are going to show you some funny topics about Spain and Spaniards in order to give you all good vibes. The main topics are:

The Spaniards tend to speak loudly

This is a funny fact about Spain and Spaniards. You can easily identify a Spaniard anywhere, because they are the ones that speak louder. It is part of the Spanish personality and it is something that contributes to create that special atmosphere.

Siesta

The well-known siesta is a 30 min – 1 hour nap in the heat of the afternoon. It is a popular tradition practiced in Spain; a chance for farmers to sleep after a heavy lunch and to avoid working during the hottest hours of the day.

Fiesta

A proper fiesta is as needed as a siesta. There is a fiesta almost every week! The reason? Each city throws a party to honor its patron saint.  People go out onto the street to celebrate with food, alcohol and music.

Pre-party

Young Spaniards do botellón before they go to a club (drinking much cheaper drinks at someone’s place rather than paying triple the normal cost of a drink inside a club).

The flamenco

When we think about flamenco, we suddenly imagine two Spanish people dancing. However, only a few people in Spain know how to dance well (although many people try). It’s a job only for professionals.

Bars

Spain has the highest number of bars, restaurants and coffee shops in the European Union, approximately 344.426!

Old people

Surprisingly, the older population goes out very often, and is always extremely elegant.
