Baeza - Spain

Today i've received a new spanish unesco site, sent by Joaninha.
"Baeza is a town of approximately 16,200 inhabitants in Andalucia, Spain, in the province of Jaén, perched on a cliff in the Loma de Baeza, a mountain range between the river Guadalquivir on the south and its tributary the Guadalimar on the north. It is chiefly known today as having many of the best-preserved examples of Italian Renaissance architecture in Spain. Unesco added Baeza and Úbeda to the World Heritage Sites list in 2003." - in: wikipedia

The Jabalquinto Palace was built in the 15h century and Baeza's best example of civil architecture, combining a flamboyant gothic structure with Isabelline decorations on it's façade. Today this building houses de International University of Andalucia.
