Jaen (province)

Jaén is a province of southern Spain, in the eastern part of the autonomous community of Andalusia. It is bordered by the provinces of Córdoba, Ciudad Real, Albacete, and Granada. Its capital is Jaén.

Although it is one of the provinces in Spain least known to tourists, it is full of valued sights and places. It is the only province in Spain with 4 natural parks (one of them as big as the whole region of La Rioja), among many other protected natural areas. As well as this natural heritage, the province contains two important Renaissance cities, Úbeda[?] and Baeza[?]. This province is the largest productor of olive oil in the world.
