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.

Alcala is located between Cordoba and Granada and has an impressive fortress dating back to 727.

Beautiful artwork and in a great position to visit the lovely Renaissance towns of Baeza and Udeda. With paronamic views all around. Our host was extremely helpful in organising interesting events and restaurants. I can highly recommend and we will be visiting again. Eileen and David (UK) Ian and Anne (Australia).

The villa is exceptional, the layout practicality and size was fantastic. The Villa owners were very accommodating with good communication and assistance throughout our stay (when needed). The pool was great for cooling off in the hot andulician summer and the surrounding views stunning. The Villa is a bit away from it all, however this is what we were looking for. So there are no beaches nearby and the nearest shops approx a 10 - 15 minute drive (10 - 15k). All in all we had a lovely stay, in what is a lovely accomodating Villa with lovely owners. I thoroughly recommend this villa for anyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing yet somewhat secluded vacation.

The accommodation is comfortable and well kitted out and looks over the village which is in easy walking distance. The locals are friendly and helpful. The location is an ideal base for travelling around this interesting area or to just relax on the private patio area and cool down in the plunge pool. After spending a few conventional holidays roasting at night in the Spanish summer heat we were grateful for the cool nights provided by the stable temperature that the cave bedrooms afford.
