Historic Monuments and Old World Charm.
The historic town of Baeza is found in the Guadalquivir Valley among the foothills of the Loma de Ubeda, surrounded by olive groves and fields of corn. Baeza has an ancient Roman, Moorish, and Christian heritage and has retained its Old World charm. In the 16th century, Baeza became an important trading center and university town. The town’s prosperity is seen in the handsome old houses and noble mansions. The spacious Paseo de la Constitución in the center of Baeza is lined with impressive 17th-century mansions. The Plaza de los Leones at the west end of the Paseo de la Constitución was named after the fountain in the center of the square that incorporates four figures of lions from the Roman site of Cástulo.
