Default State of the Spanish Siesta

A brief correction of Jessa's description of the Spanish siesta as being maintained only in smaller towns. She is right that the tendency has been towards a fading out of the siesta, particularly in Madrid and Barcelona, but she is mistaken about the extent to which the siesta has faded out across the country. I've lived in Santiago de Compostela (in northwest Spain, pop. around 100,000), where the stores, banks, universities, etc. close from 2-4pm, and in Seville (pop. around 700,000), where everything closes from 2-5pm. In Seville, a typical workday is 9am-2pm and 5pm-8am.
