JORNADA INTENSIVA Spanish shops, offices and schools used to close when everyone went home to have lunch with their families, and all activity would come to a standstill. Many offices changed their timetable in the summertime to what is called the “intensive working day” or “summer timetable” and did not take a lunch break, a custom that still continues today. However, department stores and superstores have now broken ranks and stay open all day. Many companies now prefer their employees to take shorter lunch breaks, which means that, in big cities at least, they do not have time to return home for the traditional long lunch.
