JAEN: A JOURNEY TO THE AUTHENTIC
Let yourself be dazzle by its Caslte, the Cathedral, the Arab Baths, the little town of Otiñar, the landscapes...Take part of the atmosphere in its streets, its tapas culture, its Michelin-starred restaurants.
On the summit of Santa Catalina Hill, a former Caliphal fortress was built in the s. IX century. Later, after the conquest of the city by King Ferdinand III in 1246, a Christian castle was built, which is its current form.
In the 19th century because of the Napoleonic troop invasion, the castle was modified and its defensive structures were strengthened.
The National Parador was built in the 60S outside the castle but very close to it.
