Baeza (Jaén) España

General Information:

Baeza is a municipality from the province of Jaen, in Andalusia, Spain. Baeza is still the city that was immortalized in the verses of Antonio Machado, which are ever present in this city of distinguished churches and stately homes. Arriving at the entrance along the “carretera de Jaén” (road), visitors come across the Plaza de los Leones (Plaza of the Lions), known in the 17th century as the Plaza del Pópulo. The Civil Court and the Public Notary’s Office stand in the centre of the plaza. The Plaza del Mercado has served as a meeting place for the residents of the city since the 16th century. The Arco del Barbudo (arch) opens in the porches of the plaza and climbs to the old University. One of Baeza’s most singular features takes the form of the Iglesia de la Santa Cruz, the only late Romanesque church in Andalusia. The Palacio de Jabalquinto stands directly in front of the church. The Cathedral, which was constructed over a site formerly occupied by a Moorish mosque, lies close to this area. The Renaissance façade leads onto three wide naves and attention should be drawn to the grille, the work of the master smith Bartolomé, and the Monstrance, a jewel of the Spanish Baroque period.
