Escañuela is a village (pueblo) located in the province of Jaén, Spain. According to the 2006 census (INE), the city has a population of 950 inhabitants.

The villages traditional economy is based around the production of olives - these are mainly pressed for oil. However many of the younger population work in the nearby city of Jaen.

The patron saint, to whom the church is dedicated, is San Pedro ad vincula (St Peter in chains) after which the annual fiesta in the first week of August is named. The Fiesta is an occasion of much celebration as many of the children of the village return from far away to join with their families and friends.
