The Cross of the Castle is near the castle in Jaén. Its high location makes it a strategic point for having a splendid view of the city and taking some great photos. Together with the castle and the cathedral itself, the cross is one of the symbols of the city. It's said that the cross was originally erected by Ferdinand III after snatching up king Alhamar's fortress, which was made out of wood. The cross is now a stone replica, but it keeps all the symbols and its original charm.
