I was surprised when the bands quit at 11:45 and the elder 'Lion' said,"In respect to the Church." Like many an old fishing village, hte church is the social and geographical center of the village. St. Pedro's church has a midnight mass and the local establishments cease the music until after midnight so 'Ave Maria' is not overwhelmed by Punta Rock! No worries, mate, the revelery starts anew at 12:15 or so. I think you'll find that as another nice reminder of what a lovely small town the island really is. I suppose the bar owners wouldn't want to be browbeaten by the pastor from his pulpit.
