Castillo de Santa Catalina s/n, 23001, Jaén, Jaén
Parador de Jaen, Jaen, Andalucia, Spain

The privileged location of the Parador on Santa Catalina Hill offers it the character of defensive bastion of the Jaén horizon. Origin and destination to discover the charm of the Andalusian Renaissance, the hotel has a refreshing swimming pool which, along with the exterior stone, offers protection from the burning sun which inundates the surroundings.
