BAEZA

Declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. One of the most important Renaissance enclaves in Spain.

In the neighborhood of the Cathedral we find some of the most valuable jewels of the city. There are preserved Gothic elements, such La Puerta de la Luna (The Door of the Moon) (thirteen century), and Mudejar, as the pointed hoseshoe arches of the chapels. Adjoining the Cathedral are the High Town Hall, and opposite the fountain of Santa María.

The palace of Jabalquinto, with Isabelline façade decoration, while in the cloister we can admire the transition from Renaissance to Baroque decoration. It is worth visiting the Assembly Hall, where Romanesque capitals from the ancient church of San Juan are preserved.

A must visit is the Antonio Machado International University of Andalusia, situated in the old University.

Among numerous stately houses and mansions, is Pópulo Square (plaza del Pópulo), an architectural set consinting of Pópulo House (Civil Hearing and public Clerkships)The Fountain of Lions, the old Butcher, Puerta de Jaén (Jaén Door) and Villalar Arch. It is one of the charmer corners in Baeza, where, close to noble buildings, several portions of the ancient walls and door remain.

Cándido de Elorza Square is another place of “appointment” of a large group of historical monuments, palaces Elorza, Cerón and Counts of Garcíes, Cabrera and Acuña houses.We must add the elegant shapes of San Pablo church, situated nearby.
