Baeza Travel Guide: 54 reviews and 164 photos

Baeza offers many of the best-preserved examples of Renaissance architecture in Spain. UNESCO added the Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Úbeda and Baeza to the World Heritage Sites list in 2003.

In the 16th century, Baeza, as well as Ubeda, grew rich from the production of textiles and the increase of the agricultural production. Local nobles hired important architects, such as Andrés de Vandelvira, to design new palaces, churches and public squares.

Among Baeza's Renaissance structures outstand the University, established in 1538 (now a seat for the Summer University of Granada), the Santa María Cathedral, the Palace of Jabalquinto, and the squares of Plaza de España and the Paseo de la Constitución.
