To chess lovers, the international Chess Tournament in Linares is a veritable magnet, as are the Guitar Festival and its Holy Week which has been designated of National Tourist Interest. It is outstanding for the quality of the brotherhood’s lead bands and troops of trumpeters, for the beauty of the brotherhoods imagery and especially for the performance of the Expiration in Marques Street.
As you move about you will see a priceless monumental complex
(churches, palaces, manor homes, public buildings) of differing
styles, from the simplicity of Romanic art to the preciousness
of the modernism buildings of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries,
which bears witness to the evolution of a city that perfectly
combines the past and the present.
