About the neighbourhood
There are several fiestas in Martos, Las Casillas and Alcaudette. Martos has a Market on Saturday mornings and there is a market in Torredonjimeno on the way to Jaen on a Sunday morning. A large market in Moclin on the way to Granada is on the last Sunday of the month. Martos and Alcaudette have many bars, restaurants and shops and gardens to wander around. Martos has a theatre. Jaen has a large shopping Mall which is open all day (when the Spanish have their Siesta is a good time to visit!). Most local towns have forts, churches and historical sights to visit. It is an excellent area for walking, fishing, cycling, birdwatching and relaxing. It is real undiscovered Spain and not at all touristy. You will need your Spanish phrase book but the locals will love to try to talk to you and help... more
