Hi

My wife, 4 year old boy and I will be in Granada for a week. We are driving. On our last Sunday we are driving back to Madrid and going directly to an airport hotel. I am looking for one or two places to stop for meals and tourist activities on the way back, close to the main highway. I am looking for relative ease of access, parking, and a few things to look at (nice plaza, churches, etc.)Jaen is possible but might be too close to Granada for a meal break. Valdepenas is a possibility but open to more suggestions.

Thanks

Mike

Toledo would be definitely worth seeing and is not far from Madrid (3.5 hr drive). Another possibility (also close to Madrid) is Aranjuez.

Hi RR

Thanks. Aranjuez is possible. I have been to Toledo (my wife hasn't). Great place but I think there is too much for a brief stop.

I always wanted to go to Jaen. I would go to the Cathedral there. Some of the barrios look interesting (San Juan and La Magdalena) but too steep for wandering with a 4 year old. 1 hour to see the Cathedral and drive adjacent to the barrios. I assume you have been to Cordoba and Mesquita which is out of the way but is one of the top monuments in all of Europe. Aranjuez is not for me. Better Alcala de Henares.

Aranjuez would be a quick one and so would Alcala de Henares on the M roads easy to the airport. I did those runs just last August for the upteen time.
