Jaen information

The rich natural heritage of Jaén has made it the province with the most protected natural areas in Spain, with 304.174 hectares. Its towns located in four nature parks house a monumental legacy of great artistic value and they hold a rich schedule of festivities.

A common factor to many of these towns is the presence of fighting bulls in its fiestas, which accentuates the unique regional character of its street scenes. In the natural Park of Las Sierras de Cazorla Segura y las Villas; Chilluevar; Torres de Albanchez;Castellar; Villanueva del Arzobispo; montizón; Orcera; génave and villarrodrigo y siles running of the bulls events are held during their fiestas in September.

Iznatoraf is notable for the running of fighting bulls during the pre-dawn hours; Torreperogil, for the early morning bullfight and the fiery bull fireworks; villacarrillo with running of the bulls that dates from the eighteenth century, calf fights and an all-star line up for its bullfights, and Chiclana de Segura which presents an unusual spectacle when its residents take the role of livestock handlers and bring the bulls into the town from the country. Now you only have to choose or plan a tour in which the more fiestas you see the better.
