Monumental route through Baza

 
Medieval mark.

Baza preserves an Arab and Medieval mark in its picturesque alleys.

Enchantment in its crossroad streets and caliph art in the Baths of the Jewish quarter, considered the oldest that are preserved since the Muslim period.

During the Muslim occupation and as an important meeting point of Eastern Andalusia, Baza took a relevant border role with the Kingdom of Murcia.
From the XIII century we must highlight the Citadel, whose privileged situation in the upper zone offers and splendid panoramic view of the city.

Already in the Modern Age, the Collegiate Church Concatedral de la Encarnación (Church of the Mayor), declared National monument, combines a construction of basically Gothic style with a beautiful plateresque main door. In relation to the civil architecture, the Palace of the Enríquez constitutes a clear example of the beginnings of the XVI century, together with the Town Hall, a building of Renaissance style that prevails the Major Square. From this same period are the Monastery of San Jerónimo and the Churches of Santiago, San Juan Bautista and of the Presentación.
