(4.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Walk through Plaza Vazquez de Molina, one of the best examples of Renaissance architecture in Spain. The plaza was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003, with notable historical buildings giving the space a 16th-century atmosphere. See the Deán Ortega, a Renaissance palace from the 1500s, now one of the oldest hotels in Spain. Next, explore Vázquez de Molina Palace, a Renaissance-style building also known as the Palace of the Chains, due to the decorative chains that once hung from its facade. It currently serves as the seat of Úbeda's municipal government. You can also see Saint Mary of the Royal Alcázares, a church built on the ruins of Moorish Úbeda's mosque. This church is known for incorporating Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. Finally, the Holy Chapel of the Savior is one of the town's most characteristic architectural monuments, with a sculpted stone facade renowned for its beauty.
