The Castillo de Santa Catalina in the city of Jaen in Andalusia, Spain was an 8th century Moorish fortress, and was captured in the middle of the 13th century by Ferdinand III. Ferdinand renovated the castle, as did Alfonso X and Fernando IV.

A Christian church was also built and dedicated to Santa Catalina. A viewpoint which features a large white cross atop the hill offers stupendous views of the city of Jaen especially at sunset. About 5 kilometres from the city centre and sitting on a rocky point, with outstanding views of the town and olive groves, modern-day progress came to the castle, and in 1965 was converted into the Parador Nacional, (luxury hotel), as many castles and fortresses have been.

The remains of the original Castillo de Santa Catalina can be seen in a walk around the remaining castle walls. ... continue below the picture...
