Nerja to Jaén

The Parador in Nerja sits on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean. It has a wonderful ocean view. It also has an elevator to take you down to the promenade along the beach. It was windy this morning but the temperature was pleasant so after breakfast we took the elevator down and went for a walk.

Later we checked out of the Parador and drove almost two hours inland, past Granada to Jaén. Jaén has been an important strategic town for centuries. The castle has a commanding location overlooking the town. We toured the castle.

We went into central Jaén for dinner. We lucked out and got a parking place right in front of the restaurant. We had an excellent meal.
