Full description
Get an insider’s view of Baeza’s most historic quarter on a group walking tour of the Plaza de Santa María, the Palace of Jabalquinto, the Old University, and more. Begin your urban walking adventure of this UNESCO World Heritage Site by meeting your Spanish-speaking guide at the Touristour office near the historic center. Walk along the cobble stone streets to the Plaza de Santa María to marvel at the first cathedral in all of Andalusia, the Conciliar Seminary of San Felipe Neri, and the Source of Santa Maria. Marvel at the incredible facade of the Jabalquinto Palace, also known as one of the finest examples of Isabelline Gothic architecture in the area. Next, admire the Church of Santa Cruz, which is a fabulous testimony of the Andalusian Romanesque style. Stroll along the historical streets to the Old University and take a seat in one of the pews of the classroom where the revered Spanish poet, Antonio Machado, taught for seven years. Your next stop is the Plaza del Pópulo with its remarkable Fountain of the Lions, the Puerta de Jaén, and the Villalar Arch. Listen to your expert guide as they recount vivid stories of these historical streets and squares that feel like a step back in time with their mansions bearing coats of arms, impressive churches and palaces, walled alleyways, and small whitewashed houses. Then, visit the Paseo de la Constitución where the Torre de los Aliatares, the Alhóndiga, and the Concejo Balcony are all located. As you walk along to the remains of the immense Muslim defensive wall with its towers and fortresses of yore, take a peek at the golden facades near the cathedral, as well as towards the striking Guadalquivir River.
