Jaen Information

Jaen province in the north of Andalucia is also known as the gateway to Andalucia. Jaen has a large, rich and varied heritage, a lot of monuments; environmental quality of life, the Mediterranean olive grove and a countryside of great beauty can be mentioned as some of the main assets.

Across the province there are many examples of Arab culture. Also there is an important cultural heritage of castles that have long separated the Christian and Islamic kingdoms.

The province of Jaén is a destination suitable for those who opt for the so-called inland tourism. Those who enjoy visiting historical and cultural routes will enjoy the Route of the Castles, the Renaissance Route or Route of the Caliphate; and those who prefer to see the most beautiful and important natural environment in Andalusia, will love the Natural Park of Despeñaperros or de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas, among others.

In Jaén, the traveler will have the opportunity to visit a great number of historical and natural monuments and as well practice outdoor sports like hiking, climbing, hunting or fishing in its various rivers and reservoirs.

The Sierra de Segura is the largest protected area in Spain. Jaen is perhaps best known for its profusion of olive trees which dominate the landscape; actually, this province is the world's leading producer of olives and olive oil.

The landscape of Jaen province is expansive, unspoilt and very beautiful. The small towns boast numerous magnificent Renaissance buildings - exuberant palaces, richly endowed churches and stately public squares. Some of the towns and villages worth visiting here include Baeza, Ubeda and Alcalá.
