Photographer's Note

Baeza, a small town in Jaen province, is known for its churches and palaces but behind the much visited cathedral you find a small and forgotten quarter with rather narrow alleys, mostly walls and arcs.

This quarter looks completely different from the rest of the town that is famous for its Renaissance architecture.

From Wikipedia:
In the 16th century, Baeza grew rich from the production of textiles, and local nobles hired important architects, such as Andrés de Vandelvira, to design new palaces, churches and public squares in the fashionable Italian style.
The economy collapsed in the 17th century, which had the fortunate side effect of preserving Baeza's Renaissance architectural legacy, because few newer structures were built.
