The main objective of the Andalusi legacy routes is to give value and dissemination to our cultural heritage, with special reference to the Hispanic-Muslim period, underlining, above all, the mutual and fruitful influences of the Mediterranean context throughout centuries.

CASTILLO ALCAUDETE


The route crosses 21 towns, including the capital of the province. Up to 400 castles, fortresses, turrets, strongholds and watchtowers can be found all along the way.

The Andalusi legacy has two routes in the province, the Nasrids Route and the Caliphate Route, which represent a unique opportunity to understand the key points of our past. Both itineraries cross 24 towns. The Caliphate Route –shorter– crosses the south of the province of Jaén, kissing three cities full of art, culture and history: Alcaudete, Castillo de Locubín and Alcalá la Real. The Nasrids Route –the longest one– splits the province in two, from Sierra Morena to Sierra Mágina, passing through the regions of La Campiña and La Loma. The route crosses 21 towns, including the capital of the province. Up to 400 castles, fortresses, turrets, strongholds and watchtowers can be found all along the way. The monumental heritage, landscape, popular traditions, craftsmanship and gastronomy that Jaén has today comes, to a large extent, from that refined civilization which made al-Andalus a paradise in the Middle Ages.
