This is a smaller city with not as many tourists as nearby Cordoba or Seville. Nice to wander around the old town and admire the architecture and take in some of the local history.

To even touch the surface of the many places of interest in the historic centre of Ubeda you need quite a lot of time. We did not manage to do justice to more than three sites during a morning visit, having spent quite a time...More

As we ran out of things to do in Cordoba we decided on a day trip to Ubeda and Baeza - are we ever glad we did. Ubeda's historical district is stunning - narrow alleys and roads that eventually lead to the magnificent Vázquez de...More

I know its a bit hokey, but the tourist train does an excellent job and taking you around the historic area and the many backstreets. Even if you don't understand Spanish, just the 45 minute ride is interesting and worth the 4.50 euro.

Besides the large Andalusian towns, Ubeda and Baeza are certainly worthwhile to visit. The collection of renaissance buildings is amazing. And in October there are few visitors so we could take all our time to admire the many treasures that these little towns contain.

Definitely worth stopping on route to other larger Andalucia towns. The historical centre is lovely to wander around.
