Parador de Jaén Review

Built amid the mountaintop towers of the Castillo de Santa Catalina, this 13th-century castle is one of the showpieces of the Parador chain and a good reason to visit Jaén. Its grandiose exterior echoes the Santa Catalina fortress next door, as do the massive vaulted halls, tapestries, baronial shields, and suits of armor inside. The comfortable bedrooms, with lofty ceilings, Islamic tilework, and canopy beds, have balconies overlooking fields stretching toward a dramatic mountain backdrop. Specialties served in the restaurant include spinach Jaén-style (with egg) and ajo blanco (cold garlic soup).
