The best things to do in Jaen

One of the first places to visit in Jaén is the Cathedral of the Assumption, a Renaissance cathedral located in the Plaza de Santa Maria, opposite the City Hall and the Episcopal Palace. It's a great location, because the palace is also counted among the best things to see in Jaen and it is close to the cathedral. In the palace you can see the chapter house, the sacristy, and the main facade, which is one of the major Spanish Baroque works.

Another of the most important Jaen activities is a visit to Jaén Castle, a set of three castles or fortresses that make up a large enclosure. These three forts are the Alcázar Viejo, Alcazar Nuevo, and Castillo de Santa Catalina, and they are high on the list of Jaen attractions.

Other attractions in Jaen of great importance are the Arab Baths, located in the basement of the Palacio de Villardompardo. In the same building you can find more stuff to do in Jaen, like the International Museum of Naïve Art and the Art and Popular Customs Museum.

For historical things to do in Jaen, take a look at the Battle Monument, which commemorates the great battles that took place in the province: the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa and the Battle of Bailén.
