Discover Baeza, one of the hidden gems of Andalusia. This city has a long and rich history: after being conquested by the Christian monarchs in 1227, Baeza flourished during the Renaissance period, when it became an important cultural and artistic center. Its Renaissance buildings are still nowdays one of the best preserved landmarks of that period in Spain. Baeza has also a long cultural tradition: its university is among the oldest in Spain and it is where the famous Spanish poet Antonio Machado taught for many years.
Baeza's major landmarks include the Palacio de Jabalquinto, the Iglesia de Santa Cruz, Plaza del Populo and the Convento de San Francisco with the ruines of the Capilla de los Benavides.
