I have not been there for a while. I recall ouside the town of Jaen it was just zillion of miles of Olive trees and the smell
of Olives as I drove to CDS. The town has a few of the Building/Churches of the bygone era.
The only way I would live there was if my partner is from there & she/he insist that we live there. I can imagine not much happens there.
It was very cheap there Katy -remember seeing many ads before the crash and many poorer Brits bought there and many trying to sell now ! Its a long way from the coast. It gets ferociously hot in the summer and you need air conditioning -winter time it is very chilly particularly at night-so its a continental type not a Mediteranean climate -potentially heavy utility bills
