The Andalusia city of Linares, in the province Jaén, is a land of contrasts, located between Sierra Morena (mountain) and the Guadalquivir (plain). This town was known for its mining industry in the 20th century, however today it stands out due to the quality of agricultural products and livestock.
Linares has a varied set of sights, among them - churches, palaces, monuments and public buildings. We emphasize, above all, its old town, from the City Hall square to the Consistorial Palace, invite you to take a walk through its history. We also highlight the emblematic Paseo de Linares, where we can enjoy the buildings of the mining past, among them - the Hospital Marqueses de Linares or the Abastos Market. Finally, we recommend you visit Plaza de Toros de Santa Margarita, known worldwide for the death of the bullfighter Manolete.
You cannot leave Linares if you haven´t enjoyed its culture of quality tapas made with local products. We also recommend trying the typical dishes, such as gazpacho, the crumbs, potatoes with cod, the pipirrata, the remojón and much more, finishing with the anise donuts that will make the gourmands happy.
