Ubeda Heritage

Úbeda sprawls on a knoll over the foggy valley of the Guadalquivir, among hills and olive trees and once in the city the traveller will realise its beauty and see why it has been declared a Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Nothing has changed in the Plaza Vázquez de Molina for centuries and the palaces and churches display all their splendour. Two sculpted stone lions guard the entrance to a lovely forecourt in which stands the Palacio de las Cadenas . In frint is the Santa Maria de los reales alcázares Church. Two palaces close off the plaza, that of Condentable Davalos and of Marques mancera. The former is a present-day tourist Parador, the latter a religious residence with a noble medieval tower.

You will later come across the masterpiece of Renaissance Andalusia: the San Salvador Chapel. You will also find lesser palaces and ancestral homes at every turn, cobbled streets, and small plazas revealing noble gates and monuments that will leave you breathless such as the Trinidad Church, now the cultural centre of the city, with its peaceful cloister, its regal steps and long galleries. In May you can tour these monuments to the rhythm of the Music and Dance Festival.
