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.
