On top of the Santa Catalina hill, this 18th-century castle has been beautifully renovated keeping its huge stone walls and many historical features to make for an authentic stay in Jaén. Inside the Parador Jaén, you can travel back in time to the 18th-century when you walk through and admire the original features. Look up to high, arched ceiling, wooden beams and beautiful, tiled floors throughout. Be enchanted by the decor which is in complete harmony with the historic structure, using classical-style furniture with an Arabic influence. Soak up the sunshine which this area enjoys most of the year and then cool off with a refreshing swim in the Parador Jaén’s outdoor seasonal pool. Enjoy meals in the dining room which has a distinctive Arabic character. Here, you can sample many traditional delights such as the varied soups and salads of the region.

    The atmosphere is breathing history, gorgeous view from a well equipped room, pleasant and helpful staff. The room was ready before our checkin time and as a bonus there was even free EV charging.

    The location and views were amazing. Everything was clean, staff was friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable, the food amazing, and the decor was super cool and medieval. Loved the way this parador kept the spirit of the original castle alive!
