Fascinating both the cathedral of Jaén and the Arab baths. The Cathedral is the jewel of the Renaissance in Spain and the conservation and restoration of the Arab baths is sensational. You have to see the air shelter to understand what you could feel and understand the time. If you add to all that our ANA guide, who goes out of her way and is passionate about what she does, everything is great. Even how awful hot it was is overlooked

We were lucky and were the only participants on 10/11/22 (10/12 is Spanish national holiday). So we had a very relaxed guide who always answered our questions in detail. The explanations regarding the entire production process were also detailed and very detailed. We were completely satisfied and can definitely recommend this tour.

Very interesting visit. Unfortunately an English speaking guide was unavailable for our visit but they let us know well in advance and offered a full refund but we decided to go ahead and enjoyed despite the slight language barrier (we live in Spain so have some Spanish).

Definitely worth doing to get overall view of Jaen and detailed history of the city /cathedral /Arab occupation and baths. Our guide Ivan was really good and helpful and knew so much about the city -honestly I never knew there was so much to it

Very interesting ! The CEO himself gave the explanation. Very expert explanation.
