This cathedral will take your breath away. It is huge and so beautiful. The carvings of the stone are so intricate. Inside the ceilings are also beautifully carved. The visit is 5 euros, worth every penny. Make sure to go back at night to see it lit up. Also go to the castle above Jaen to view the town as... More

This cathedral is of magnificent proportions and is interesting to visit. We spent quite a long time wandering around looking at the chapels, the vestments and the other items that are on display.

The Assumption of the Virgin Cathedral is a Renaissance-style, Roman Catholic cathedral located in Santa María Square, opposite the Town Hall The cathedral is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin and it's built in Renaissance-style. Notable safe and caveaux in the basement with lots of ancient reliques.

Great cathedral, but it's a distance from the train station. If you don't like to walk, take a taxi. There was an entry fee, and it was worth it. No photography was allowed. The Santa Rostro, or Veronica's Vail face of Jesus, was on display. I like Spanish cathedrals, and this was in the top three. Barcelona's is my favorite... More

My visit was related to a friend's marriage ceremony and this Cathedral makes it a memorable marriage ceremony venue. It has beautiful architectural designs inside and out and is worth a visit even without a marriage!. The surrounding area has many similar beautiful buildings and small cafes, shops and restaurants too. Definitely on top of tourist attractions list.

Not many British tourists venture up to Jaen, preferring Córdoba and Sevilla for their fine landmarks. Jaen is well worth a visit just for its outstanding cathedral architecture and tour. One of the best Spanish cathedrals we have visited.

Another superb historical monument. Every bit as impressive as Granada and quite possibly better. Not so much more to do in this city but well worth a stopover en route from Granada to Cordoba.

A beautiful cathedral with an opportunity to climb part way up for impressive views. Use the handset for a personal guided tour. Allow plenty of time for parking during peak season.

Stunning interior with bags of history. Visited during corpus Christie weekend so cathedral was closed to sightseers for most of the day. Viewing gallery on the first floor was closed but still really enjoyed visit.
