Apart from the historical, artistic and cultural heritage that Úbeda and Baeza have, both cities hide many other details that make them unique.
Both Úbeda and Baeza have witnessed the birth of some of the most illustrious characters in our history. In addition, some historical personalities decided, at some point in their lives, to put their place of residence in one of these two Renaissance cities.
Not only have Úbeda and Baeza conceived illustrious characters that have marked our history, but today both cities continue to witness the birth of artists of all kinds: singers, writers, painters, sculptors, actors, film directors, and a long etcetera.
Guild of Craftsmen
The region of La Loma, and specifically, the cities of Úbeda and Baeza, have a large concentration of artisan workshops. This is due to the influence of different cultures: the Arab, the Mudejar and the Renaissance, which settled for years in these places. Most of the workshops are of a family nature, since the artisan tradition has been transmitted from father to son.
Due to the great beauty and attractiveness of Úbeda and Baeza, as well as the perfect state of preservation of their historic center, resembling those of the 15th and 16th centuries, the streets of Úbeda and Baeza have been the protagonists of the filming of some of the best known period films such as Alatriste or La Conjura de El Escorial.
It is common for each place to hide legends or fictitious stories, which are sometimes supernatural. Here you can discover the best known legends of Úbeda and Baeza, which have marked their history and culture.
