Located in an 13th century Arab fortress, Parador de Jaén hides quite a few ghostly secrets behind its doors. According to a guest who stayed in the castle's Room 22, he was awakened in the middle of the night by loud thuds on the door and the cries of a woman. It was later confirmed that the noises were made by the ghost of a young woman who had died of heartbreak in that very room many centuries ago. The hotel also accommodates the spirit of Terrible Lizard, a prisoner who died of starvation while being locked up in the fortress centuries ago. Most people say he is a harmless ghost, but he is believed to possess the distracted guests.
