Full description
Get an insider’s view of Úbeda's most historic neighborhoods on a small-group walking tour of the Plaza Primero de Mayo, the Old Town Hall, the Church of San Pablo, and more. Begin your urban walking adventure of this UNESCO World Heritage Site by meeting your Spanish-speaking guide at the supplier's office in the city center. Move across to the Plaza Primero de Mayo, a historic square that has hosted the city's main market for centuries. Find yourself marvelling at the Old Town Hall, and the monument to San Juan de la Cruz — the revered saint of the city — as your guide explains in detail their historical context. Then, stroll over to the part of town steeped in religious history to visit the Church of San Pablo and the Convent of San Miguel. Marvel at the architecture of one of the most exclusive landmarks of the city, and the last great inhabited Renaissance palace in the province, the Old Palace of Fancisco de los Cobos. Then, make your way to the Plaza Vázquez de Molina, where a host of buildings rich in history are located, all of which your expert guide will explain in detail. Gaze at the stunning Sacra Capilla del Salvador, a famous chapel built between 1536 and 1559 and the flagship of the Úbeda Renaissance architecture. Then take in the equally stunning Palace del Deán Ortega, the Old Pósito, or the old public granary, the Palace of the Marquis of Mancera, the Basilica of Santa María de los Reales Alcázares, and the Vázquez de Molina Palace. End your tour at the Plaza de Ayuntamiento by visiting the Palacio Vela de los Cobos, giving you a unique insight into how Spanish aristocracy lived back in its heyday.
