I am a hard-working, responsible person and I love the work I do Inform and interpret my routes or tourist visits. He differentiated me from the other tourist guides in two things, one is: that I behave as I am (I am myself) and second, because my routes or visits are not like the normal ones that explain a monument or any tourist resource, if not , which apart from that, I explain and if I can also teach, the secrets that my locality hides, such as Linares (Jaén), such as a mining Church that is closed to the public (and I ask permission not to open them), a mining gallery, etc.

Tour description

Free Tour to visit the Ibero-Roman archaeological site of Cástulo, in the town of Linares (Jaén).

It will begin by explaining from the beginning of Cástulo , which was founded with the Iberian culture (although in the past there was an old settlement prior to the Iberian), with the town of La Muela, followed by the Carthaginians (with him, the military Aníbal, who married the princess Imilce who was from Cástulo), then came the Romans with the Conquest of Cástulo through Publio Cornelio Escipión "THE AFRICAN", we passed to the Visigoths, Arabs and Christians, until in the fifteenth century the city was definitively abandoned.

We will visit the North wall of Cástulo , where the famous Iberian Lion was found, then we will go to the Torre Vigía or Torre Alba (defensive tower or watchtower), Roman Baths , a possible Synagogue that existed before the Jews settled in Spain and finally the jewel of the Crown of Cástulo, the famous "MOSAICO DE LOS AMORES".
Through georadar I will indicate where the Roman Circus of Cástulo and its Amphitheater were located.
Each stone, each column that is seen will explain the function or what it was used for and its history.

If you want to visit one of the most important Ibero-Roman cities of the Iberian Peninsula ; which was the most important city of Oretania, since Cástulo had its own port, because the Guadalimar river was navigable. Take this Free Tour to Cástulo , because you will not remain indifferent.

Carlos nos contactó el sábado día 1 por la tarde confirmando el punto de encuentro para el domingo día 2 a las 12:30 hrs. Le confirmamos la visita. El domingo recibimos un audio de WhatsApp a las 12:05 hrs. diciendo que está en una visita en Baeza que se ha alargado y que por lo menos llegará más de quince minutos tarde. Nosotros habíamos llegado a las 11:30 hrs. y le esperábamos a las 12:30 hrs. No se puede asumir un compromiso cuando se está haciendo una visita previa con un horario que hace incompatible cumplir con la siguiente. Nos hemos disgustado porque queríamos realizar la visita a Cástulo. No nos ha parecido para nada profesional.

Un guía extremadamente atento y puntual. Linares tiene poca "chicha" monumental y aún así hace un tour muy ameno.
