Language

In Lloret de Mar, like the rest of Catalonia, the official languages are Catalan and Spanish, though its tradition of tourism means many people can speak and understand other languages, such as English and French.

 

Currency

The euro (€) is the official currency in the European Union. Currency can be exchanged at banks, ATMs and bureau de change branches in the city.

Banks are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 14:00 and Saturdays from 8:30 to 13:00 (banks are closed on Saturdays during the summer). Savings banks in particular are also open on Thursday afternoons, except in summer. There are also several bureau de change offices open daily.

Local schedules and customs

Business hours:

From Monday to Saturday, businesses in Lloret open between 9:00 and 10:00 and close for lunch between 13:00 and 13:30. They reopen in the afternoon at around 16:00 and close at 20:00-20:30. In summer, many businesses remain open until 23:00 (the latest closing time allowed) and some open on Sundays. Bars and pubs close at 3:00 and nightclubs close at 5:00.

Meal times:

In Lloret de Mar, like the rest of the country, meals are usually eaten later than in the rest of Europe. Breakfast is usually eaten between 9:00 and 11:00 and tends to be quite light. Lunch is served between 13:30 and 15:30, and dinner is eaten between 20:30 and 22:30. Restaurant opening times are based around these hours, though there are some establishments that serve food throughout the day and even 24 hours.

Working hours:

The workday is split in two, with the morning half beginning between 8:00 and 9:00 and finishing at 13:00-13:30; work resumes during the afternoon at around 16:00 until 19:00-19:30 (except for public administration and banks, which have a continuous workday until 14:00 or 15:00).
