Free tour of the secrets of Jaén
Hello! I'm Rachel. I have been a Tourist Guide in Jaén for 3 years. I consider myself a great enthusiast of my profession, a passion that I have carried with me for many years and that I have finally fulfilled like a dream. I love dealing with the public because they are my way of sharing the history of a place, why it is there. I hope I can pass on the story to you as much as I do the passion for it :)
Jaén, a monumental hidden gem in Andalusia, awaits you with the hospitality that characterizes it to introduce you to its historical, artistic and natural heritage. This city, capital of the region with the most castles in Europe, will surprise you.
We cannot talk about Jaén without talking about the imposing Castle of Santa Catalina, which rises above the hills of the city to give us a panoramic view of it that will leave you breathless. Castle, which is a testimony to the different stages of our History, this was, for example, the place that President De Gaulle chose to finish his memoirs, and which today houses a luxurious National Parador.
The narrow streets of its old town will make you travel through time and immerse yourself in the Moorish past in its Arab Baths, a vestige of the influence of Andalus in the region and its famous Mudejar Hall from the 15th century.
Jaén is also known for being the World Capital of Olive Oil, which you can contrast in the local bars with your palate and observe from a bird's eye view the sea of olive trees that surrounds the city.
The capital of the Holy Kingdom is a city that will surprise you at every corner, unknown and amazing, it is the city that Visigoths, Romans, Muslims and Christians chose to settle. The land that fell in love with international figures and that inspired verses by poets of the stature of Miguel Hernández.
Come and discover Jaén with us, we reveal this treasure of upper Andalusia to you with the help of our experts. You will take with you an unforgettable memory and a warm and welcoming hug from its people.
