An impressive cathedral in the very center of the city. While walking through the narrow streets in the old town, you all of the sudden arrive to a big beautiful square with the huge cathedral in the middle. It has unique architecture and all the building around it are antique with colored flowers in the balconies. Totally recommend to visit... More

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.
