Jaén: a charming city to live and invest in

The famous city of Jaén is surrounded by olive groves and home to unparalleled cultural tourism. It offers many investment possibilities for those who are thinking of investing in this thriving place. This can be done through a real estate franchise as endorsed by a prestigious company such as Engel & Völkers.

The world capital of olive oil

Jaén has always had a strategic importance in Spain with its steep streets and wide avenues, surrounded by fertile soil where olive groves grow, and sites that are occupied by castles and fortresses dating back to the Arab domination. Jaén is known as the capital of the most appreciated oil. It is also a thriving city in the tourist, construction, agricultural and administrative industries.

Artistic and historical heritage
Jaén is a city with great cultural wealth. Its most outstanding historical symbols are the 
Asunción de la Virgen Cathedral, Santa Catalina and its churches, while Renaissance art can be seen in the architectural jewels of San Francisco and Villadompardo palaces.

Gastronomic delights
As this city is a producer of olive oil, its culinary richness includes recipes with this essential ingredient. Its dishes represent customs of each civilisation and people who have lived there. Jaén is known for its potaje con habas (beans stew), the popular pipirrana (vegetable salad), blood sausages, cod stew and the venison pie with sweet and sour sauce.

Transport routes
The city is connected directly with Madrid and other Andalusian capitals via the railway and various bus stops. The roads are in very good condition thanks to the city's location between Castilla La Mancha and Andalusia.

The real estate industry in Jaén
Jaén is experiencing its best moment since the economic crisis. The real estate sector in this city is enjoying secure returns due to the dynamism of its economy so far this year. Since the first quarter of 2017, property sales increased by 27% compared to the previous year. Jaén is a leader in real estate investment in the Andalucia region along with Malaga. During this year, Jaen exceeded its highest figure since the first quarter of 2011.
