Places to visit in Jaen Province, Spain

The small but charming town of Baeza is set around the Plaza Mayor and the tree lined paseo with its many pavement cafés. The Marquessa de Jabalquinto is a wonderfully ornate building, now used as a seminary. Close by is the 16th century with wonderful painted screen work and a silver custodia hidden behind a painting of St Peter – it’s worth paying the small fee to see this novelty. There are many other monuments, too many to list, in this charming town which is within easy reach of your self catering villa.

Alcala is located between Cordoba and Granada and has an impressive fortress dating back to 727. It was still in use in the 19th century when it was badly damaged during battles with the French and was abandoned, but the three rows of fortifications and a small museum are interesting to visit. The imposing Abbey Church with its 42 metre high tower and hewn stone vaults is over 500 years old. It shows a progression of architectural styles from Gothic to Renaissance. The paseo, or promenade, is the site of various fairs and markets as well as a place to stroll with the locals.

Access to the excellent road network is easy and driving is a joy. The property is quite spacious and very comfortable to stay in. It is well equipped, though I would suggest that a cafetiere is needed to cater for those who, like me, need their morning coffee The pool seemed quite inviting, though we did not try it out, and the terrace is a lovely place to relax as the sun goes down. We had a most enjoyable stay with Emma and I would happily return to see more of this delightful part of Spain

A nice terrace and swimming pool. Situated in a small village with friendly neighbours and very good BBQ restaurant within 20 mins walk. Easy to reach Granada, and the attractive town of Alcala Real and its fortress are really worth visiting. Cordoba is a longer drive but perfectly manageable. Surrounding countryside is very beautiful and we much enjoyed walks from the apartment. Our hosts were extremely helpful and knowledgable.
