Age old monuments on the slopes of the Sierra de Baza Nature Reserve
This historic city is next to the Baza Mountains Nature Reserve. The old Moorish part of the town, made up of the "Medina", "Alcazaba" and Arab neighbourhoods, with their narrow streets, is all but intact. The "Alcazaba" (citadel) is in the historic centre. Some parts of its defensive walls and the remains of various towers can be seen to this day. Also worthy of note are the Mudejar style Santiago Church, and the Nuestra Señora Santa María de la Encarnación ex-collegiate church, built on the remains of a former mosque. Baza also has important archaeological and historical sites, such as the remains of the Iberian-Roman city of Basti, the town's two necropolis and its Moorish baths.
