A myriad of narrow cobbled streets, some of which are traffic free, interspersed with many buildings of architectural interest, leading to the impressive Plaza de Vazquez Molino lined by 16th Century palaces and churches. Despite concessions to modern day life many of the buildings maintain...More

This is a smaller city with not as many tourists as nearby Cordoba or Seville. Nice to wander around the old town and admire the architecture and take in some of the local history.

To even touch the surface of the many places of interest in the historic centre of Ubeda you need quite a lot of time. We did not manage to do justice to more than three sites during a morning visit, having spent quite a time...More

As we ran out of things to do in Cordoba we decided on a day trip to Ubeda and Baeza - are we ever glad we did. Ubeda's historical district is stunning - narrow alleys and roads that eventually lead to the magnificent Vázquez de...More

We have been in many Centro Historicos all around Spain. This would not be in the top ten, but it was still very nice. There were some attractive Renaissance buildings and three fine plazas. The major drawback for us, and as a Unesco World Heritage...More

We learned that the town of Ubeda goes way, way back to pre-historic times and has had Roman, Muslim, and Christian domination through the centuries. Because the 1500's and 1600's were so prosperous for Spain, much money went into the buildings during the period of...More

I know its a bit hokey, but the tourist train does an excellent job and taking you around the historic area and the many backstreets. Even if you don't understand Spanish, just the 45 minute ride is interesting and worth the 4.50 euro.

Besides the large Andalusian towns, Ubeda and Baeza are certainly worthwhile to visit. The collection of renaissance buildings is amazing. And in October there are few visitors so we could take all our time to admire the many treasures that these little towns contain.
