Literary Routes through the Province of Jaen

Discover new corners of Jaén through its literary reminiscences and revisit the landscapes of this province to know more about its links with relevant authors. This is the objective of “Literary routes through the province of Jaén”.

This project of the Provincial Council of Jaén brings together different tourist-literary proposals and gives continuity to other actions for the revaluation of this immense cultural heritage of this area, such as the magnificent Literary Atlas of the Province of Jaén of the Institute of Jaén Studies or the management of the Miguel Hernández Legacy, with a special mention to the launch of the museum of the universal poet in Quesada, an essential visit.

This province has seen the birth of prominent figures of Hispanic literature and has been home and inspiration to great names in classical literature. With this insight, “Literary routes through the province of Jaén” offers proposals to follow the footsteps of eight distinguished authors in our province in ten different locations and more than one hundred milestones with literary echoes. The geniuses of Jorge Manrique, Santa Teresa de Jesús, San Juan de la Cruz, Antonio Machado, Federico García Lorca, Miguel Hernández, Antonio Muñoz Molina or Juan Eslava Galán, will now guide us on an extraordinary and evocative journey through Jaén.

A new option for you to discover or revisit the inland paradise of Andalusia or to complement that trip to Jaén with oil tourism, enjoy its protected natural spaces or delve into its immense historical heritage. Because Jaén Inland Paradise is that place where everything comes together to offer you an exceptional experience: a unique landscape of 66 million olive trees, with a cutting-edge gastronomy based on its extraordinary extra virgin olive oil, along with the priceless legacy of World Heritage cities Úbeda and Baeza, the result of a decisive crossroads in European history and surrounded by the largest extension of protected natural areas in Spain, with the Natural Park of Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas as the best reference.
