Castles and Baths: in the High Lands

In Jaen, under the Palace of Villardompardo, the Baths of Alí may be visited. It is worth mentioning that the restoration work carried out on them won the Europa Nostra prize. Other Arab Baths are located in the old Royal Slaughterhouse.

Castles come into view on the way to Sierra Morena: the castle of Baños de la Ecina from the Caliphate period, which used to block the strategic pass through the Castilian plateau to the Guadalquivir valley. A place not too far from here was the scene of one of the most decisive battles fought between Moors and Christians: Navas de Tolosa.

The castles of Canena and Sabiote, of Arab origin, were later converted into Renaissance palaces. An epilogue to this route could be a visit to the Arab Baths of Segura de la Sierra.
