The most stunning unspoilt Renaissance square in the whole of Spain. It's has palaces churches from the 16th century. We stayed in the parador set in the square. A 1530 palace. The whole is a unesco site and you can see why.

If you are visiting you will inevitably find yourself in this area. Surround by historic and architecturally interesting buildings this is a good spot for taking pictures, and shade can be found a little further along on the small park/garden commemorating the architect.

Amazing place to wander around and spend a day. Great shops nearby & lots of great places to eat. It was raining when we visited but it was still very beautiful.

Visiting Plaza de Molina is a must when in Ubeda. The local architecture is an indication on how prosperous that area was around 500 years ago. You may also want to walk around the city, espacially through its narrow streets. It is truly an unforgettable...More
