Jaen

The city of Jean is located in the south-central part of Spain. The city is the capitol of the province of the same name. The last few years have seen a large increase in the cultural tourism industry. In addition, the city is nicknamed the “world capital of olive oil.” This is because the city is the largest producer of what is referred to as liquid gold. The city of Jaen is located in the Santa Catalina Mountains and has streets that are steep and narrow in the centre of the city’s historical district.

 

There are several important monuments located in Jaen. The Saint Catalina’s Castle is located on a hill that overlooks the city. There are some remains of the Abrehui’s castle that still remain. The current castle was constructed by Christians and was built after the city was conquered in 1246 by Ferdinand III.

 

Another important building in Jaen is the Jaen Cathedral. The cathedral is built in a renaissance style and construction started in 1570. The cathedral was not completed until 1802. The Veil of Veronica is sheltered by the cathedral and is revealed to the public every other week on Friday.

The temperature in the summer averages from 14 to 32 degrees Celsius. The fall temperatures average from 14 to 25 degrees Celsius.

 

The airport that services the city of Jaen is the Linares Airport. As the airport is located in Granada, which is a fair distance from the city of Jaen, visitors should consider car hire in Linares Airport in order to travel to the city.
