Ubeda - Renaissance city in the Andalucian hills

Ubeda is a handsome Renaissance city in the hills of north east Andalucia. Ubeda, and nearby Baeza, would have been very fashionable places to live in the 16th century. Aristocratic families, who were at the Court of Castille, had their households here and embellished their home towns with handsome palaces and churches. None more so than “the local boy made good”, Francisco de los Cobos, who rose through the ranks of the Court to be Imperial Secretary to Charles V.

Ubeda is a “must see” for lovers of fine architecture, but is also a delightful place to explore and enjoy. Andrew and I stayed here for a few days in May 2006. It is quite peaceful, but I suggest you visit soon, as Ubeda is being discovered a little more each year.
