Area guide to Jaén

Jaén is considered to be one of Andalucia’s regions of outstanding beauty. Its landscape is dominated by olive trees, which is why Jaén is the world’s leading producer of olives and olive oil and the venue of an annual world trade fair devoted to the olive oil industry. In terms of travelling to Jaén, it is served by the airports in Granada, Córdoba and Málaga.

The rural landscape is dotted with centuries-old villages and traditional whitewashed farms and its towns are filled with Renaissance era churches, palaces and plazas. The towns of Ubeda and Baeza are UNESCO World Historic-Artistic sites due to the significant amount of well-preserved Renaissance architecture and it is fair to say that this are is often overlooked by foreign buyers.

Jaén city

This city has a rich heritage, which is reflected in its buildings, such as the Moorish castle that is now a parador with fantastic views. Its museum has one of Spain’s leading collections of Iberian art, but the city also has the amenities needed for a contemporary lifestyle.


There are two golf courses in Jaén province; Club de Golf La Garza in Linares and Medina Elvira Golf in Atarfe.


Jaén doesn’t have many international schools, but there is the Almunecar International School in Jaén city and Saint Philip’s British School in Linares. Schools in Granada may be sufficiently close depending on location.
