Ba帽os de la Encina is located in Sierra Morena, next to the swamp of Rumblar聽in the province of Ja茅n, and I advance you that besides a caliphal castle, it has a beautiful church and a hermitage with an impressive baroque chapel.
In a first approach to the attractions of Baños de la Encina, I will tell you that in the Plaza Mayor, nowadays called Plaza de la Constitucion, you will find the Town Hall and the church of San Mateo and some very nice manor houses.
It is curious to see how all the inhabitants of Baños de la Encina have been involved in the conservation of its historical heritage, so that in 1969 it was declared a Historic-Artistic Site.
Commissioned by King Ferdinand III, it has two important access doors, the main one known as Puerta del Perd贸n, in the mannerist style with two coats of arms above it, and the side door in the Gothic Mudjar style, known as Puerta del Sol.

Among them are the two events that have been presented this Friday, the Andalusian Night of the Rose and the eleventh edition of the Sweet Cotton Festival, which in the opinion of Francisco Javier Lozano «show that the province of Jaén offers a wide and varied quality programming to attract visitors to their municipalities during the summer season».
The first of these appointments will include batucada, medieval circus and «the usual performances, minus the flea market, all very controlled but with a lot of animation in the village to keep the pulse of the activity,» detailed Las Heras, who has specified regarding the country festival that every day there will be a concert: on Friday August 6 will perform the Galician group The Lakazans, and the next day will be the turn of J.P. Bimeni & The Black Belts.
The construction of the parish of San Mateo, the construction of large houses on the wall or the necessity to give exit to strangled alleys like Madres de Dios, were disfiguring the Cerco. Of the original construction we can appreciate the wall that slides before our sight down Trinidad street, the escarpment that delimits the street Fugitivos crossing in its south flank, the tower exempt of the Corvera or Poblaciones Dávalos, and one of the guard posts that appears to the left of the door of the present hospedería de los Guzmanes.
But the truly surprising thing is its tower camarín. All the iconography of the New Testament, immersed in a polychrome amalgam of exotic birds, vegetal garlands and angels that are sustained on stipes, niches, pedestals and mirrors, it is happening in height from the polygonal plant at ground level to close in a spectacular vault, that well reminds us of the one of muqarnas present in the mosque Cathedral of Cordoba or the Alhambra of Granada.
