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.

Really lovely place and people

5 of 5
We spend 10 great days here and really enjoyed it. The house is perfect with a cherry tree onsite. The pool is a perfect size and our children really enjoyed it. They wifi also meant they had full access to Netflix. We dragged them out walking a lot and what a beautiful area with almond trees, pomegrante trees growing on the roadside. The hills are covered in well tended olive groves. Esteban and his lovely family are so welcoming and we really enjoyed our time with them. We felt we saw the real Spain with nice, friendly kind people who are happy to chat. We loved the fiesta that was ongoing when we were there. We paid a trip to Grenada where we had wonderful raciones/tapas and in Baeza where we had churros and chocolate and more tapas. This is a wonderful rural holiday.
