Jaen is often overlooked by visitors to Granada, but it is well worth an hours drive to see this beautiful cathedral. Imposing from the outside with the twin belltowers and striking inside with the vast tall pillars, carved ceilings and ornate altar.

This cathedral is very big. In his time was the model for several cathedrals in Latin Amarika. Jaen is a beautiful city with several interesting museums and the landscape is very beautiful. Ubeda-Baeza is near by and also Granada.
