of Santa María, with its gothic cloister.
Also on the square are three large buildings The Chapell of the Saviour, The Funerary shrine of Fransisco de los Cobos and the Palaces of Vazquez de Molina and Dean Ortega all designed by Andrés de Salvador, Andalusia’s greatest Renaissance architect.

Hospital de Santiago and The Church of San Pablo

The local cuisine is excellent ...

And as the Spanish people sit down from time to time to eat too, there exists also a wide variety of restaurants:
From those serving excellent local cuisine to the new creators who have based their innovations on traditional cuisine, using excellent local and Mediterranean products.

Renaissance Food Festival

Renaissance cuisine also has an important place.
Between the months of January and March, the city holds its Renaissance Food Festival, with lunches and evening meals in emblematic restaurants, sometimes accompanied by shows.
There is also the possibility of organizing Renaissance meals throughout the year for groups, with theatre and music.

Cultural Life

You will find cinemas, theatres, exhibition halls, museums and concerts throughout the year. Of particular importance is program of the Hospital de Santiago cultural centre.
Assisting a concert in the Hospital's Chapel, particularly if it is a classical or flamenco concert, is an unforgettable experience because of the magnificent acoustics.

In addition, at the Casa Museo Andalusí flamenco tablao, you can see the artists Vicente Fernández and Rosario Valera, magnificent dancers and teachers who can teach you this magical art at their flamenco school.

Fiestas and Festivals

More Fiestas and Semana Santa (Holy Easter Week)

Also important are the religious processions (“romerías") in spring and summer, carnival in February and the Fiesta of San Antón.
Without doubt, Holy Week is Úbeda's largest festival. In fact, Úbeda is one of the few places in Spain where the Holy Week processions are organised in chronological order. The general procession on Good Friday in which all the brotherhoods take part is a unique experience.
