How often is this construction used

I would like to ask if this construction is often used in Spanish. Is it in some cases interchangeable with cuando? Can it also mean immediately after? E.g. : al regresar del museo me tumbé en la cama? Al plus infinitive seems to be a very convenient construction.

Hola Emanuel

It is used very very often. And yes, you could say:

Al llegar a casa llamó a Silvia.

or

Cuando llegó a casa llamó a Silvia.

Different structures meaning the same.
