Things close a bit earlier in small towns of Spain – so head out by 10pm at the latest to enjoy a drink (or several bottles of cider) before things start to close up around midnight. And the bottles average out to be about €2 apiece. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
