Palacio del Deán Ortega, Parador de Ubeda

Plaza de Vázquez Molina, s/n 23400 Úbeda Jaén

Cultural Visit

The World Heritage City of Úbeda is located in the province of Jaén, west of the Cazorla and Segura mountains near the Guadalquivir River. You will find the Parador in the old quarter, housed in a 16th-century palace on Renaissance-styleVázquez de Molina Square. The local architecture will remind you of an Italian Renaissance city, but with the folklore, age-old handicrafts, cuisine and joyous atmosphere of Andalusia. The hotel façade conceals an extremely beautiful interior courtyard and some of the guest rooms offer a spectacular view of the square.

Just a short stroll separates the Parador from some of the loveliest buildings in Úbeda, including El Salvador Chapel, the palace of the Marquis of Mancera and Vázquez Molina Palace, now home to the city hall.

The city's wealth of cultural heritage is reflected in its walls, palaces, churches, monasteries and convents. Begin your tour on Redonda de Miradores Street, Úbeda's viewpoint overlooking a sea of olive trees. Continue along its winding streets, visiting antique shops, museums, neighborhoods such as San Millán, and picturesque Valencia Street, where you can still find artisan potters working in their shops. You will discover a truly unique place.

 

Know the environment

The quality and state of preservation of its many Renaissance buildings and the unique urban environment led this municipality in the province of Jaén to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 3, 2003.

Known as the ‘city of the hills’, it is located in the La Loma district (top producer of olive oil in the area), near the Sierra Mágina mountains. The essence of Úbeda lies in its magnificent Renaissance buildings and monuments, in its palaces, walls, monasteries, convents and stately homes. It is truly the jewel of the Andalusian Renaissance.
