Do I need a Suit Jacket in Spain?

I will be traveling in Spain and Portugal next month. We will be staying in Paradors and other nice hotels. I would like to travel light, and not bring a suit jacket. Can I get away with slacks and collared shirts, or will I barred from some restaurants for dress code without a jacket?

I will be visiting Barcelona, Burgos, Santiago de Compostela, and Lisbon. One place we are staying is at the Hospital de los Reyes Catolicos Parador in Santiago de C., and supposedly there is a famous restaurant there in the former morgue of the Hospital. My google skills (and my Spanish) are failing me, and I can't seem to find a dress code for that restaurant. I would like to eat in that restaurant.
Can I do "fine" dining in Spain and Portugal without a suit jacket? Of course, there are always places that require formal wear for dinner - but generally, are there enough nice restaurants in those cities that I can get away without bringing a jacket for dinner.
