A lesser known resort among holidaymakers, southern Spain's Jaén Province is located in northeastern Andalucia, offering a peaceful holiday away from the main tourist crowds. Served by Granada Airport, this culturally rich region has plenty to offer, from its pristine landscape adorned with lush orange trees and olive groves, to its heritage sites, ancient architecture and idyllic surroundings. Enjoy the great outdoors by exploring the fertile Guadalquivir river, walking the ravines and challenging yourself to a mountain hike along the foothills of Sierra Magina.
Those interested in the region's past can step back in time in Jaén city, with its Castle of Santa Catalina towering over the fields and pueblos and Jaén Cathedral in Santa Maria Square. The Museum of Jaén is home to the province's historical artifacts, with sculptures and paintings from the 14th-20th centuries. Take a tapas and wine tour or dine alfresco and sample the region's traditional Iberian dishes, best complimented by the delicious regional Mencía red wine, produced by the local wineries. Take in the views of the Renaissance cities of Ubeda and Baeza in the distance, adding to this authentic experience and intensifying the rich, rustic flavours.

Jaén Province has huge significance when it comes to Spain’s history between the Moors of Granada and the Christians of Castile and Leon who battled for over seven centuries. Remains of their legacy can still be seen today but nowadays the region is renowned for being one of the most peaceful in Andalucia and the main producer of olive oil in Spain, where its pristine landscape flourishes with olive groves, orange trees and a scattering of historic gems.
Jaén’s capital city of the same name boasts a number of ancient monuments. Among them are the 13th century Castle of Santa Catalina and the Arab baths from the Moorish period. But the most breath-taking is Jaén Cathedral with its impressive Renaissance architecture and immense size. The cities Ubeda and Baeza are a must-see. Nestled in the heart of the province, both towns are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Step back in time as you walk the narrow, cobbled streets past the Renaissance buildings. Like most of this rural region, the towns are surrounding by olive groves, yielding an authentic sense of serenity when combined with the Renaissance architecture.
Alcala la Real is a relatively small town in the south of the province, known mostly for the Moorish fort, Fortaleza de La Mota, perched atop of a cliff overlooking the town. With an abundance of stunning relics found inside and a breath-taking panoramic view of the surrounding area from atop the tower, it is a must see for history buffs.
Sierra de Cazorla, mountain range in the north of the province is blessed with a rich natural environment, wildlife and the Guadalquivir and Borosa rivers chiseling their way through the rocky terrain. Awaken your desire for adventure and try hiking, climbing, river rafting, canoeing or kayaking across this heavenly landscape.
