Though construction of Jaén Cathedral began in 1249, most of what stands today is from the 16th century. It is the home of important religious relics, such as the Holy Face of the Veil of Veronica. It is said that Saint Veronica used this cloth to wipe the face of Christ, and his image then became imprinted upon it. Pick up an audio guide and admire the adorned interior of the cathedral. On the lower floor, experience an impressive collection of religious art from over the centuries.

Una visita más, de las tantas que hemos hecho a nuestra preciosa cátedral, con motivo de la noche jaenciana, monumentos abiertos en una noche muy especial. more »One more visit, of the many that we have made to our beautiful chair, on the occasion of the Jaenciannight, open monuments on a very special night.
Absolutely beautiful cathedral and the best and only redeeming part of coming to Jaen as there’s very little else to see. I loved browsing all the individual chapels each with their own personality and charm. You can also get a brilliant perspective of the massive scale of the building by climbing up to the top and walking around the perimeter with views of both the interior and an eagle eye view of the gorgeous surrounding countryside.
Beautiful cathedral. Slightly run down on the outside, but amazing on the inside. Sacred spaces are beautiful.
