Marchena is a lovely small town. The pace of life is very relaxed and easy going. We found everyone very friendly and helpful and even though there was the language barrier, it didn't stop people from trying to help. There appears to be a good community spirit in the town. In the evenings the older people, the men in particular would sit outside on chairs on the footpaths chatting, something you don't see nowadays. As I said in the villa review, the supermarkets were excellent especially supermercado, the quality, range and price were very good. There is also a lot of historical buildings in Marchena and plenty to explore. I would be quite happy to return again for another holiday.
