Plaza de San Lorenzo and Iglesia de San Lorenzo, Ubeda, Spain

It’s worth heading down to the Plaza de San Lorenzo in Ubeda, which is dominated by the beautiful ruins of the Iglesia de San Lorenzo (16th Century, Renaissance) with its tower half overgrown with ivy overlooking the square. Just by the church is a little alleyway that heads out of the old town and straight to the countryside, as steep slope means further construction is difficult there. There are thus lovely views over rolling olive groves and hills in the distance, while along the town walls we can see the Puerta de Granada, another gateway to Úbeda.
