Warriors and Iberian Citadels Route

ITINERARY: Jaén - Puente Tablas - Linares - Ibros - Úbeda - Peal de Becerro - Quesada.

The world of the Iberians, pre-Roman inhabitants of Spain and Portugal (Iberia), was described by the Greek geographer Strabo. Among the tribes mentioned in Andalusia, the Oretani inhabited the actual area of Jaén and it is there that their culture is most strongly exressed. Fortifications, armies, great trading activity by their chieftains come to mind when visiting these remains.

The museum at Jaén houses the unique 6th century BC series of sculptures from Porcuna. The trip can begin at the 5th-4th century BC walled town of Puente Tablas near Jaén.The museum at Linares has several objects from the near by Iberian-Roman town of Cástulo, where remains of the walls are still seen.

The Cyclopean wll of Iros is a classic monument of Iberian culture, from where we continue to the 4th century BC sepulchral chamber of Toya at Peal de Becerro, a pre-Roman architectural marvel. Near by, we may end this tour at the Roman villa of Bruñel, at Quesada, where various chambers and mosaics can be still seen.
