“Surprising”
Review of Jaen Cathedral

Jaen Cathedral
Ranked #1 of 58 things to do in Jaen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2013

It is huge and plenty of art although it doesn't have many seats if you go to mass. It is a must if visiting Jaen.
It contains also memories of the dramatic Spanish civil war, many priest were assassinated during those times.

We loved our visit to the Cathedral, a gem in Jaén. Make sure you climb the steps to see the views at the top, a great picture of Jaén.

I was amazed to see all possible corners inside, and even climb the stairs to see both the views (beautiful hills full of olives surrounding Jaen) and the church from above. Usually you are not allowed to wander around secret passages and private rooms but here you can do it so don't miss it!

Amazing treasures, very different from other cathedrals in Spain. The place was almost empty when we went

Amazing cathedral, with breathtaking chapels, one more beautiful than the next. Visit on Fridays, 17:00-18:00, when the Veronica Veil is on display.
