Morning of the irst day

Probably you will arrive to Baeza with your own car, if so, we recommend that you park on the Julio Burell or Carmen streets and also on the surroundings of the Wall, this area normally has some places and it is free. Moreover, you can park here for several days without any problem. If you come with other transportation, read carefully the section "How to arrive" to find more information about that. 

The entrance in most of the buildings isn't for free (for more information go the section of each monument). Due to that, maybe, getting a tourist tour which includes the inside of the monuments would be the best option. Here, you will find different enterprises devoted to offer tourist services in Úbeda and Baeza.

If you decide to go by yourself, we propose to you this route: 

Go to the Square of the Saint Cross, where you cn visit the Church of the Saint Cross, one of the few which has Romanesque style in Baeza. In front of it there is the Palace of Jabalquinto, current International University of Andalucia (UNIA). It is worth to observe carefully the abundant decoration of its façade and you should enter inside. Here, you can see the Renaissance courtyard and its majestic Baroque monumental staircase.

After, go to the Square of Saint Mary, in which there is a huge and peculiar stone fountain, and go inside the Seminary of Saint Philip Neri where you can observe a little Renaissance style courtyard. You cannot leave the square without going inside the Cathedral, a monument you should see due to its beauty. You will be surelly surprised.

After this walk, we recommend that you stop and relax with some tapas or, if you prefer it, eat something else. Here, we propose you a list of bars and restaurants where you can do it.
