    The ancient town of Baza dominates the trough of the valley that takes its name¸ and is located in the face of Sierra de Baza Natural Park of 52¸337 hectares. It has been described as a real "climatic island" due to its water resources and dense vegetation. Its heights reach over 2¸000 m¸ which contrasts the surrounding area. This monumental town shows visitors all the different cultures that were once in those lands through its historical artistic heritage portrayed in stone.

        Many archaeological remains from Prehistoric times through to the Iberians and Romans have been found in this area meant expelling the Moors and the end of the coexistence of three cultures: Muslim¸ Catholic and Jewish¸ which had been a constant feature in Al-Andalus for the past eight centuries.
There is data that seems to prove that Miguel de Cervantes was in Baza as an Executor of the Royal Treasury around 1604. 

        Set against the backdrop the Sierra Baza¸ the Baza area offers some of the most spectacular scenery Spain has to offer. Whether you want the rugged mountain snow capped views¸ the tumbling water falls¸  enchanting hidden valleys with shallow running rivers¸ olive & almond treed slopes or picturesque lakes¸ the ?Highlands? of Granada offer some of the most stunning¸ and breathtaking views on offer to rival anywhere in the world.

        The surrounding landscapes of the Baza and Lake Negratin areas can only be described as stunning.  Contrast is the key feature of the surrounding area ? varying from the cobalt blue coloured lake to a Grand Canyon-like backdrop on the north shore of the lake to the wooded southern slope of Mount Jabalc?n with its hot springs and wildlife.  Beyond the lake to west lies a moon-like badlands landscape followed in the horizon by the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada.  Just minutes either to the north or south lies the immense Cazorla National park known for its waterfalls and wildlife and to the south Sierra Baza known for its wooded mountains¸ deer and flora.

 

        Festival

            Grand Fair¸ celebrated from the 6th to the 15th of September¸ in honour of the Virgen de la Piedad¸ with the participation of Cascamorras. This character¸ dating back several centuries¸ leaves from Guadix to try to take the Virgen de Baza¸ and on his way¸ the public pursue the character by throwing paint at him in order to tarnish his image on arrival at Baza¸ preventing him from stealing the image.
