Castle in Jaén

The castle in Jaen is maybe better known for having part of it converted into a parador, a nationally run high end line of hotels that are housed in historic buildings.
That being said, you can visit the castle just to see it and it is pretty spectacular, complete with big looming towers and a long winding road leading up to it. The oldest parts are from the 8th century but most of it is from the 13th on.
3 euro entry with a video presentation about the history of the castle.
