Baeza

Baeza

Baeza is a city in Andalusia in southern Spain. The city is located on a cliff in the Loma de Baeza Mountains between the rivers Gudalquivir and Guadalimar. The landscape around Baeza is dominated by olive trees. Baeza is declared a place of historic and artistic importance and is well known for its best-preserved examples of Renaissance architecture.

In the heart of Baeza is the Plaza del Pópulo. The buildings around the square include two floors supported by an open colonnade. In the middle of the square is the Fuente de los Leones, a fountain with four lions, probably transferred from the Iberian-Roman city Cástulo.

The Palacio de Jabalquinto is probably the best example of a combination of architectural styles. The facade is built in Gothic style with Isabella decorations. Inside Renaissance and Baroque meet each other in the beautiful courtyard. The palace was built in the 15th century and is now partly used by the International University of Andalusia.

On the wide Paseo de la Constitución there are beautiful 17th century houses. The finest and most striking are the Clock Tower and the old Los Aliatares Market with its gallery of three arches.

On the Paseo Cardinal Benavides you will find the Town Hall (Ayuntamiento). This building has an impressive facade with balconies and coats of arms, including one of Philip II. Not far away are the ruins of the convent of San Francisco.

The Parque Natural de Cazorla is a protected area to the east of the towns of Baeza and Úbeda. In the mountains at an altitude of 800 to 2100 meters there is coolness and tranquility. The park is popular with holidaymakers who like to escape the bustle and heat of Andalusia. You can find here wild boar, deer and mountain goats and eagles, hawks and vultures fly over the high mountains. The area is ideal for hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, hunting, fishing and camping.
