Parador de Jaén: a luxury hotel with a ghost included

Some will say that even crazy people would pay to spend a night of fear, others, however, will be packing to embark on an unforgettable mystery journey. And is that, according to the legend (and the claim of a client), in room 22 of the tower of the Castle of Santa Catalina in Jaén, a presence is dedicated to disturbing at night with terrible noises.

Knocks on the doors, lowering temperatures, sliding furniture, shadows, tears... And all concentrated in the same tower. But why?

Apparently, Miguel Lucas de Iranzo, constable of the kingdom of Castile under the orders of King Henry IV, had a Muslim lover. The young woman, being the object of envy due to her influence on the man, who made him lose his job, was cruelly murdered in the castle.
