Jaén Cathedral

A key icon of Jaén

On Plaza de Santa María, Jaén's Assumption of the Virgin Cathedral is not surprisingly one of the city's most iconic buildings. Begun in 1249 and consecrated in 1724, it's a splendid example of pure Spanish Renaissance, with a graceful, soaring façade reminiscent of a retable. The interior features thick columns supporting a high cupola, as well as myriad chapels and extraordinary religious art. Highlights include the sacristy, the choir seats, the high chapel, and the cathedral museum, home to a wealth of sculptures, paintings, gold and silver items, and manuscripts.
