Both Úbeda and Baeza were towns in southern Spain that were controlled by the Moors in the 9th century and to the Reconquista in the 13th. The outstanding feature of both towns are the constructions carried out in the 16th century, where Renaissance-style buildings, from palaces to churches, introduced new humanistic ideas from Italy into Spain.
