Baeza Things to Do: 43 reviews and 128 photos

The Palace of Jabalquinto is the most important sample of civil architecture in Baeza. It was built in Plateresque style in the XV century, under the order of Juan Alfonso Benavides, favorite and relative of the Catholic Monarch Fernando.
The decoration of the façade is very rich. In the upper part there are eight tilted coats of arms arranged in the Flemish way. Four belonged to the wife?s lineage, four to the husband?s. There are also diamond points and nails. Two big cylindrical buttresses open forming mocárabes (honeycomb work).
As it was closed we couldn?t enter to see the courtyard and the Baroque stair.

Closed on weekend!

Address: Plaza de Santa Cruz
