Above It All
Arrived in Jaen & got a little lost in the round-a-bouts, but after finding the Parador signs, we found the road up to the fort on the hill. The view from our room was awesome - a large balcony with a spectacular view south - mountains & olive groves all around us.
The Parador was built next to the 13th Century Castle of Santa Catalina (3 Euro entrance fee if you feel the urge to see it). It uses similar stone & blends in nicely. The view north is the town of Jaen below & endless miles of olive groves. The other side views the Sierra Almaden & Sierra de Alta Coloma mountains + endless miles of olive groves. The large sitting room between the bar & the restaurant is fabulous with tapestries & paintings etc. Very atmospheric.
Directions: Up on the hill.
