UBEDA – THE QUEEN is situated in the very heart of the province of JAEN located in a wide expanse of olive groves in the high valley of the GUADALQUIVIR in an area known as LA LOMA just 8 kms from BAEZA.
The beauty of UBEDA'S townscape is sure to impress you. Green olive groves mark the edge of this historic town, giving way to façades of carved stone amidst whitewashed houses.
UBEDA, has a wealth of unique examples of the arrival of RENAISSANCE in Andalusia as you can see from the streets packed with churches, palaces and stately houses.
This is an urban model with clear Italian influences, which Spain in turn gave its own characteristics before exporting it to Latin America in the colonial period.
Located at the entrance of the town is the HOSPITAL DE SANTIAGO with a luminous cloister and high chapel. The PLAZA DE SANTA MARIA is considered one of the most outstanding historic artistic ensembles in the region.
The outstanding feature of UBEDA is the monumental square, the Plaza de Vazquez de Molina, in the OLD TOWN surrounded by imposing buildings such as the Palacio de las Cadenas (so named for the decorative chains which once hung from the façade).
The EL SALVDOR CHAPEL, Santa María de los Reales Alcázares Church and Las Cadenas Palace will take you back in time to the most grandiose days of Ubeda's history.
Poetry lovers will be interested to know that the 16th century mystic SAINT JOHN OF THE CROSS died in a monastery in UBEDA.
UBEDA awaits you to share her monumental wealth with you, the delicacies of Mediterranean fare and the sea of olive trees that permeates every space.
