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.

Old stones and gatherings of kids with smart-phones around Fountains and on squares: strange contemporary mixture! The clash of old and new was most pleasant and the kids/youths were polite and behaved...
Only one tiny thing: surely there must be a way to 'hide' TV aerials and such?

The Palace of Jabalquinto is located in the Plaza de Santa Cruz and is the most impressive and beautiful palace of Baeza. It was ordered to be constructed in the 15th century by Juan Alonso de Benavides Manrique, who was the second cousin of King Ferdinand, the Catholic. Juan Guas was the architect. The palace is one of the best examples of the Spanish Gothic style, with an Isabeline facade. There are semicircular pillars with capitals that resemble stalactites. There are diamond like protruberances on the facade that play with light and shadow. On the top floor is a gallery with five arches that was added in the 16th century, and is of Renaissance style. There is an impressive Renaissance courtyard and a Baroque monumental staircase.

The coats of arms, medallions with classic figures inset, and the buildings and arches surrounding the square reflect several centuries of history under both Arab and Spanish rule.

Well worth the 2euro - pensioner rate entrance fee. Pay extra for listening device in your language. Views from the top of the bell tower very good.

A very small and simple classroom, which he is supposed to have used with a plaque to the great poet on an outside wall; Machado famously stood up to Franco on a public occasion, but died soon after in 1939. From Sevilla he went to Baeza to teach French in the new university from 1912 to 1919, then moved on to Soria in the North. He was supposedly taught in the old university, closed in 1875, the year he was born. He has the walk/road above the countryside in the town named after him too. He wrote he would remember Baeza, even when he could no longer see it.

The Town Hall is in a building constructed in the 16th century, finished in 1523. It was supposed to be a prison, but later was used for other purposes and became the Town Hall in 1867. The façade is very impressive and is in the late Plateresque style, designed by Vandelvira. The second floor has four balconies with one arch and two lintel openings that are held by little marble columns. There are small rose windows above these. There are pilasters, friezes and arches that have decorative figures. There is a giant coat of arms of King Felipe II. The façade is highly decorative. It was called the Antigua Carcel y Palacio de Justicia.

Lovely architectural old building with tourist information and helpful guide. Not much more to say other than the old slaughter house is next door, but private.
