9. Jaén night tour: legends and mysteries
Discover our city at nightfall on a tour of approximately 2 hours, exploring its many legends, ghosts and rich monumental history. We will begin our journey at the Plaza de la Constitución, the epicentre of the city, where you can park your vehicle in the underground car park. We will meet next to the Potter's Monument. Then, we'll head towards the charming neighbourhood of San Ildefonso, walking along its picturesque streets such as Cuatro Torres and Reja de la Capilla. Just in front of the Gothic entrance, we will share the fascinating legend of the Virgen de la Capilla and show you the exterior of the chapel of the patron saint of Jaén. We will continue to the Plaza de San Ildefonso, where the Basilica Menor, the second most important church in Jaén, is located. We will go up Bernabé Soriano street, known as "La Carrera", and we will take a walk around the Cathedral, passing by San Francisco Square and Almenas street. There, you will discover the different stages of our cathedral and the most iconic legends that surround it. When we arrive at the Plaza de Santa María, you'll be left speechless as you admire its impressive façade and hear the story of the haunting ghost of the Cathedral's child. You'll experience chills as you learn about the terrifying legend of Father Canillas at the Arch of San Lorenzo and the tragic stories of the Civil War at the War Shelter. We'll stop at the Plaza de la Audiencia to explore the city's oldest theatre and finish our tour by working up an appetite in the local taverns. Are you ready to be captivated by these haunted stories?
