What to see in Jaén
Jaén is one of Andalusia’s lesser known cities but it is home to a great deal of interesting sights. The Cathedral, which dates back to the 14th century, is probably the most noteworthy of all with its Renaissance style, and served as inspiration for many of Latin America’s cathedrals. Another must-visit is the Castle of Santa Catalina, offering spectacular views. The Villardompardo Palace is a unique building that dates back to the 16th century when it was the residence of the Viceroy of Peru. It was built on top of Arab baths that were discovered in 1913. When the time comes to grab a bite in the city famous for its olive oil, there are three main areas to focus on: one is around the cathedral, another is around Plaza de San Ildefonso, and the third is between the granary (el Pósito) and Plaza de la Constitución.
