The 10 Best Things to do in Baeza, Andalucia

May 1, 2022 Leida Jutras

Baeza (Spanish pronunciation: [baˈeθa]), formerly also written as Baéza, is an Andalusian town in the province of Jaén in southern Spain. It lies perched on a cliff in the Loma de Úbeda, the range separating the Guadalquivir River to its south from the Guadalimar to its north. It is now principally famed for having some of the best-preserved examples of Italian Renaissance architecture in Spain. Along with Úbeda, it was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 2003. The former Visigothic bishopric of Baeza remains a Latin Catholic titular see.

Cathedral de Baeza

Reviewed By RhinoLondon_England - Ottery St. Mary, United Kingdom

The cathedral is one of the stonemason-architect Vandelvira’s works. Perhaps the most impressive details inside the cathedral can be found by looking towards the back where one can see the original narrow-span arch and the much wider span of Vandelvira’s work. The jump in scale is a measure of the spectacular change that he brought about and, together with the quality of the decorative carving, it amply demonstrates his engineering and architectural skills. A climb up the tower provides excellent views of the town: beware when the bells strike the hour!

Palacio de Jabalquinto

Reviewed By Dalmik - Vilnius, Lithuania

Palacio de Jabalquinto was built at the end of the XV century and the coats of arms on the facade are a sign that the building was home of noble family. Two balconies with the ornamentation on columns, the pointed arches above the gate and windows show the influence of Mudejar style. Pay attention to the figures onto these arches. And the arches of the top five windows are different from others and are designed in Renaissance style. It is very good that the building (University now) can be seen and observed (free of charge) not only from the outside, but also from the inside. Inside the building is the patio with two storey arcade. Abudance of shields of these galleries and especially other decorations of staircase were made in Baroque style. In this environment, two Mudejar-style ornaments decorated doors are perfectly suited to Baroque decorations of the entrance to the staircase.

Plaza del Populo

Reviewed By Dalmik - Vilnius, Lithuania

Plaza del Populo, as well as Plaza de Santa Maria, is another Baeza square, which is one of the oldest and was one of the most important in the town at Middle Ages. This square is also known as Plaza de Los Leones. There are some objects of interest in this Plaza. The square is surrounded by buildings of Antigua Carniceria, Casa del Populo (there is Office of Tourism), Puerta de Jaen and the Arch of Villalar. There is also the Roman (!) fountain with the statue of Iberian princess in the center of the square.

Baeza Old Town

Reviewed By sallyr922 - Alicante, Spain

Surrounded by olive trees the views are amazing. The old city is very interesting but not suitable for a wheelchair as very hilly and cobbled streets. A must is to visit an olive oil factory. We visited one in Begijar. 12euros for a taxi there and 12 back. Very helpful. We stayed at the top of Baeza near the cathedral and is was very difficult driving the car up there. Limited parking in the hotel garage. But a lovely place and would certainly return.
