Some people may choose to skip Baeza and/or Ubeda on their tour through Andalucia. This would be a real mistake. Both cities are a definite must see. They are much quieter than any of the other tourist highlights in Andalucia but that in particular makes...More

Though it has some attractions, including a pleasant plaza and some attractive buildings I'm afraid that in my opinion it comes second best to it's sister city of Ubeda which is only a few kilometres away. We spent two nights there in late November and...More

Baeza has a beautifully intact and gorgeous Renaissance town centre, sort-of pedestrianzed. Absolutely worth the visit.

Wander around and absorb the history. This is a living old town where people live, work. Go to school and university. Take your time and be sure to go out to the viewpoint looking over the olive groves that stretch for miles.

We spent an hour or 2 in the late afternoon wandering around the laneways and narrow streets of the old town. There are some interesting features, including the elevated walkways from the cathedral to nearby properties (presumably ecclesiastic when built). It was disappointing to look...More

Full of charm. Full of life. So much to see. You can spend a good few hours walking the narrow streets of Baeza and stopping at tapas bars along the way.

Take some time to wander around and enjoy the many old (hundreds of years) mansions. Some have been turned into nice hotels. Stopped in a local market. Not everyone speaks English, but it is not crowded or congested like other major nearby cities.

A classic Spanish hilltown and a UNESCO World Heritage site that is lovely to stroll around without the company of the many thousands of people that visit the Andalusian cities with greater draw such as Granada, etc. It is perhaps quieter and less grand than...More

It’s a really nice little town. Do not expect a lot of shops etc. If you like some peace and quiet, this is the place to be. It has nice buildings and narrow streets.

This town is very old and well preserved. I loved the old buildings, all made of stone and the narrow cobbled streets. A great stop if travelling between Córdoba and Granada

All of the major historic sights in Baeza are within a short walk of each other and centred around the streets leading up to and away from the Cathedral. Avoiding the heat of the day is best so time your visit to first thing in...More
