This trip was full so we went to Lorca yesterday and found the museum of the blue brotherhood and it is well worth a visit.  2.50 entrance it's  over 3 floors with a lift.  Top floor you can see the ladies doing the embroidery using real gold and silks.  Amazing skills we were allowed in the room with them as we were the only ones there.  It takes 1 year to complete a banner.  The museum is laid out well with lots of costume to see and movies of parades.  All explained in English,   you can also see the church and the floats they carry the statues on.
On the same road is the Artisan centre which is wheelchair friendly and full of gorgeous local products.  We spent a good cojp6le of hours there and there's a nice square for drinks or lunch nearby.  Got to do the castle next.
