Jabalquinto Palace is like a Russian matryoshka: the deeper you go, the more discoveries you make. The Palace has a Gothic facade. Despite the fact that the Palace was built for Juan Alfonso de Benavides many years after the expulsion of the Moors from Baeza, the openwork carvings on the facade clearly indicate the Mudejar style. The main entrance is arched and framed by Arab towers. However, once the courtyard we find that the Gothic had gone with a flat-screen TV. The patio is a Renaissance example. It is surrounded by two rows of marble columns forming arcades. The monumental staircase with balusters and various decorations already has a Baroque look. The international University of Andalusia currently occupies the Palace. After passing through the gallery, I went to the memorial auditorium, where in 1912-1919 the famous Spanish poet and playwright of the existential direction, the Republican Antonio Machado, taught. The audience is saved in the same format. Curiously.

When walking into the narrow street of the historical centre of Baeza, you will certainly arrive at the “Palacio Jabalquinto” at the “Plaza de Santa Cruz”. It is one of the most impressive and beautiful palaces of Baeza. It was ordered to be built into the 15th century this by Juan Alonso de Benavides Manrique, who was the second backyard of King Ferdinand, the Catholic. The palace is one of the best examples of the “Spanish Gothic” style, with an Isabeline facade. Do not forget to have a look in the impressive Renaissance courtyard and a baroque monumental staircase. Very nice location once you are on the inside.

Palacio de Jabalquinto was built at the end of the XV century and the coats of arms on the facade are a sign that the building was home of noble family. Two balconies with the ornamentation on columns, the pointed arches above the gate and windows show the influence of Mudejar style. Pay attention to the figures onto these arches. And the arches of the top five windows are different from others and are designed in Renaissance style. It is very good that the building (University now) can be seen and observed (free of charge) not only from the outside, but also from the inside. Inside the building is the patio with two storey arcade. Abudance of shields of these galleries and especially other decorations of staircase were made in Baroque style. In this environment, two Mudejar-style ornaments decorated doors are perfectly suited to Baroque decorations of the entrance to the staircase.
