Úbeda & Baéza, Andalusia, Spain

Úbeda and Baéza are neighboring towns in the province of Jaén in Spain’s autonomous community of Andalusia.

Both cities have a long history. Archeological findings indicate a pre-Roman settlement at Úbeda. The area became important during the Muslim conquest of Spain.

Both cities benefited from extensive patronage in the early 16th century resulting in the construction of a series of Renaissance style palaces and churches, which have been preserved ever since.

Here are a few photos of the old city centers and sightseeings of these 2 towns.
