The Parador de Ubeda in Andalusia rises up in the aristocratic and monumental town of Ubeda (declared Heritage of Mankind by UNESCO), and is situated in the Renaissance Vazquez de Molina plaza next to some of the most beautiful buildings in the town. These include the sacred chapel of El Salvador, the Marques de Mancera Palace and the Vazquez Molina Palace, now the Town Hall.
The Parador de Ubeda is located in a former palace built in the 16th century and altered in the 17th century, which belonged to the dean of the Sacred chapel of El Salvador. The façade of the Parador conceals a very beautiful inner courtyard with a double gallery, the upper section being glazed.
The Parador´s comfortable bedrooms are all spacious, luminous and all have high ceilings. Six of the bedrooms look out onto the Vazquez de Molina plaza.
The dining room is particularly lovely, decorated in typical Andalusian style and local dishes offered here include peppers stuffed with partridge, ox tail in red wine from La Loma and baby goat stew with pine nuts.

TEXT BELOW TAKEN FROM THE UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE LIST.
Ubeda and Baeza were both declared Heritage of Mankind by UNESCO in 2003.
"The central areas of Ubeda and nearby Baeza constitute outstanding early examples of Renaissance civic architecture and urban planning in Spain in the early 16th century.
The urban morphology of the two small cities of Ubeda and Baeza in southern Spain dates back to the Moorish 9th century and to the Reconquista in the 13th century. An important development took place in the 16th century, when the cities were subject to renovation along the lines of the emerging Renaissance. This planning intervention was part of the introduction into Spain of new humanistic ideas from Italy, which went on to have a great influence on the architecture of Latin America."
