A castle standing amid olive groves
The site offers visitors the chance to enjoy the fabulous views over the city of Jaén, and over an outstanding natural landscape.
The castle stands on the ridge of Santa Catalina
, originally the site of three different fortresses, on which was built today's castle. The Torre de Aníbal tower, the surviving remains of one of these ancient fortresses can still be seen today. Another interesting feature of this castle, which is connected with the city of Jaén by means of a passageway, is the Mirador de la Cruz viewing point with its exceptional views. The castle is now a Parador hotel.
