There's not a heck of a lot to attract a visitor to Jaen and that is shame because this building is worth a day's trip of anyone's time. Jaen is a poor region of Andalucia and that means very poor. My wife and I visited the capital following a couple of days in Baeza and Ubeda. We arrived on a... More

We made a half-day trip to Jaen from Granada to see the cathedral. This magnificent building dominates the city. It was well worth a trip! Amazing architecture. We've visited on Sun and were lucky to enter just before the mass. There was no admission fee on that day, but no audio guides as well. When in Jaen, do make sure... More

A very good attraction in the centre of the city. It is easy to get to from the carpark on the plaza.It is worth a visit but there are a lot of stairs.There is a fair amount of graffiti in the surrounding area which a shame.

If cathedrals are your thing this one is a must. If not you still need to see it from the outside - it's difficult not to be impressed by its sheer size. Inside is an over the top array of artefacts dating back centuries.

When in Jaen, visiting the 16th century Cathedral is an absolute must. It is situated in the city centre and can best be reached after a short walk through the many (shopping) streets.

Wonderful visit. Be aware there are an awful lot of steps to go up to the bell tower, but worth it and there are benches on each level of stairs which is a great help. The vault held an amazing array o gold, silver and brass dated back to 12th century. The cloth that Veronica wiped Christ's face with is... More

Very impressive from the outside and even more so inside. Brilliant value at only 5 euros for entry which includes an audio handset (available in English) which I would highly recommend. There are 22 audio points and the information given on each one is interesting & informative without being too long. A really enjoyable visit and a 'must see' if... More
