The Parador de Jaén stands high above the city atop Santa Catalina Hill. Its emblematic figure dominates the horizon, so that as you approach Jaén, it will always be the first to welcome you. The hotel is your departure point and destination for exploring all of the charm of Renaissance Andalusia. The monumental appearance of its interior is maintained in the spectacular cross vault 20 meters high in the main function room, the dining room and the guest rooms with incredible panoramic views of the city.
Jaén's Barrio Antiguo (Old Quarter) has preserved the vestiges of a spectacular city. Nuestra Señora de la Asunción Cathedral; the Arab baths, the largest and most important in Europe; the Provincial Fine Arts Museum; and San Lorenzo Arch, recently declared a National Monument, are just some of the sights well worth visiting.
A visit to the surrounding area is an excellent option, allowing you to explore the Sierra de Cazorla mountains and Sierra de Segura region, with their exceptional nature reserves. Olive groves and the Guadalquivir River, which flows through this land, add special appeal to a place where the characteristic light of Andalusia never fails to make its presence felt.
