Jaén is to be found nestled at the foot of the Santa Catalina Hill. Under the watchful eye of the castle, you can see the imposing Cathedral of the Assumption and the impressive and beautiful landscape of vertical cliffs and deep valleys of Sierra Sur of Jaén and Sierra Magina. This contrasts with olive-groves in the countryside which stretch as far as the eye can see, crossed by the Via Verde del Aceite (old railway line) that heads out from the capital.

As it is a land which has figured on many routes and on many borders, Jaén has been spoiled by history. It was once one of the most important Iberian settlements in the Peninsula. It played a leading role in the Al-Andalus period and was of influence during the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. It figures on two of the 4 Tourist Routes in the province of Jaén, inspired by the monuments, art and history: The Castles and Battles Route and The Renaissance Route.

Whatever the season, we recommend bringing comfortable shoes and clothes. Remember it's a dry place with nights that are quite cold in winter, while in summer it is advisable to bring long trousers as, although it will be hot, mosquitoes can be a problem.

A Starlight Reserve is an international certification which is granted only to those places where the night sky remains in impeccable conditions of conservation in terms of darkness. If a given area is certified as a Starlight Reserve, this can be taken as a guarantee of quality, as it means that there is little light pollution, that at least 60% of nights are clear and that the darkness of the night sky is similar to or better than the skies above many professional observatories worldwide.

Starlight Reserve certification is endorsed by the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics , UNESCO and the World Tourism Organization.

In 2014, the Sierra Sur de Jaén, with its 10 towns and villages, was certified as the first Starlight Reserve and Tourist Destination in Andalusia. In addition, the Sierra Sur de Jaén has the Andalusian Astronomy Observatory, which houses the largest astronomical telescope for informative use in Andalucía.
