Next square is Sta María square, with the fountain and the cathedral.



It was made in 1564. On the top, Felipe II coat of arms.

At the back, a seminary built in 1660.









Next to the cathedral, the old town hall.



It was a 15th century house, changed in 1526. Final gothic style.





Cathedral's facade, the main gate was made in 1587.



Over the door, the birth of the Virgin.





The tower was built over a moorish minaret, most of it was built in 1545.

The cloister is older, 14th century.



The chapels are gothic and mudejar style.



Mudéjar chapel.





This is Spain, a catholic building with moorish writings.

Some historic buildings going down a street.



This one was a jesuitic convent, the inferior part has been reconverted into houses.



Rubín de Ceballos palace.



Anonymous renaissance palace, 16th century.







Stud horses barracks, nowadays an exposition room.



Fernando III the Saint square and the sculpture, he conquered the city.ç


St Anthony hospital, old 16th century hospital.



Close to it is the old jail, now is the town hall.


It's a big renaissance building made in 1520-1523.

















Little church



I saw some archs from that street, but I didn't go because I thought it was nothing. I failed!



This is the convents facade, partially ruined due to an earthquake and the french invasion. Pic by touristeye.es



Outside facade. It was built in 1538 and is one of Vandelvira's most important buildings. Pic by rabespierre, de Flickr.

Main apse. Pic by Zarateman, from Wikipedia.

Thanks a lot balthazar!

St Paul street is outer walls, one of the nicest. It was ornated because there was a procession.



At right, St Paul church, at left, a little palace.



Cabrera house, little palace built at the early 16th century.



Err... what the hell is that? I suppose the builder wasn't paid at time...



St Paul church.





More little palaces.



House Acuña.



Sánchez Valenzuela palace, final 15th century, early 16th century. Nowdays is a casino.



Salcedo palace is the biggest of the street, today is a hotel.



Antonio Machado sculpture, a spanish poet.



16th century, however more gothic than renaissance.











Say goodbye to St Paul street.



And we are going to finish with some night pictures. Here, Jabalquinto palace, the cathedral's tower...



Santa María square, the fountain and the cathedral.





Pópulo square, house of Pópulo, Jaén gate and Villalar arch.



Lions fountain...



END of Baeza, but...

JAÉN is the capital city of Jaén province, where are Úbeda and Baeza. Jáen city is 116.000 inhabitants. The cathedral is a contender to be UNESCO World Heritage Site, as an add to Úbeda and Baeza declaration.

At first, I went up to the castle of Sta Catalina.







This man got a beterr pic.

image hosted on flickr

Jaén, Spain por campese, en Flickr

From the top of the castle.



Now in the city centre, some buildings like this, the Vilches palace, early 16th century.





Province palace of Jaén.



The apse of the cathedral. If they want to be UNESCO World Heritage Site, they should clean the stone!



The main facade, opened to a big square.



The facade was made in 1667-1688, baroque, but following renaissance models by Vandelvira.



In the same square there are the ecclesiastic and the civile power. This is the bishops palace.



This is the town hall.



This is the most important renaissance cathedral in Spain.



Tabernacle instead of the typical spanish altarpiece.



Chapterhouse, 1556.



Sacristy, 1555-1560, one of Vandelvira master works.

The cathedral's choir.



Vaults and the dome.







Renaissance stained glass windows.





You can go up to the high gallery, where there is a little cathedral museum.



There is a balcony, a good viewpoint.





The tower and the mountains behind.





And a great point of view inside the cathedral.



Cross capitals, high influence in México and Perú cathedrals.



An usual street.



In the cathedral square, a little industrial building, early 20th century, it was an old clocks shop.





I didn't see St Ildefonso basilique, where Vandelvira is buried. 16th century tower. Pic by Kordas, from Wikipedia.



There are more interesting buildings in Jaén, some churchs, Villardompardo palace... I'm gonna focuse in a short route about the renaissance fountains of the city. This is new fountain of Count Torralba, next to Merced church.





It was built in 1504.



A noble house.



Old gate of a destroyed church.



There are some degraded zones, like this. At left, the old slaughter, deserted, at right the "fountain of the spouts" (Fuente de los Caños).



Made in 1558.



Atlas.



Arrabalejo fountain, 1573. Pic by elgipiese.es.



Bernardas fountain, 17th century. Pic by Abraham López.



And the last I'll post about Jaén is Villardompardo palace, when I went it was closed... It was built in 16th century to be the house of the viceroy of Perú. Pic by Kordas, from Wikipedia.



The most important part of the palace are the arab baths, the biggest preserved in Spain. Were built in 11th-12nd century. Pic by viajetet.com

Buho, this is what I think of all this:




The thread is so impressive that I needd more than one time to enjoy all of the pictures, so many details and interesting things they have.
