What’s Living in Lucena Like?
Do you enjoy walking to work, spending very little on rent and getting free tapas with your beer? If so, then Lucena could be the ideal place for you. Located in the heart of the Andalusian countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Lucena is a small and pretty city ideally located within an hour of Malaga airport by bus, and close to other big cities such as Córdoba, Seville and Granada. This makes it the perfect place to discover the wonders of Andalusia and venture further afield at the weekends. Lucena also presents Spanish language enthusiasts with the perfect opportunity to learn and practice Spanish.
- They say everything is a 5min walk away in Lucena, including a variety of clothing and electronics stores, 4 major supermarket chains and a weekly local Spanish market
- Extremely festive for its size, huge traditional parades and street celebrations throughout the year, but can be easily avoided if you fancy a quiet night in
