ESSENTIALS

On July 3, 2003, Baeza was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its Renaissance monumental complex. Strolling through its streets is like entering the 16th century when the city experienced its greatest architectural and cultural splendor. Most of the essential tourist resources belong to that time, those that cannot be missed when visiting our city. Like the Cathedral of the Nativity, which despite having its origins in the 13th century, acquired a clear Renaissance stamp with the master Andrés de Vandelvira; or the Jabalquinto Palace, a jewel in the heart of Baeza, as well as the Old University, at the time one of the most important in Spain.

Squares such as Santa María or Pópulo exude the history and culture in this city of monuments and walks, such as those given by Antonio Machado. The great poet lived a few years in Baeza and got inspiration from walking along with the remains of the old medieval wall and contemplating the fields of olive trees, the origin of some of the best oils in the world. Few places are better than Baeza to practice olive oil tourism, thanks to a temple-like the Museo de la Cultura del Olivo, located in a historic building and the middle of a privileged natural setting

All of this and much more is Baeza.
