The Church of San Nicolás de Bari in Úbeda is considered to be one of the best examples of Andalusian Gothic architecture.

Its construction began in the 14th century, but was completed between the 15th and 16th and alternates Gothic style with Renaissance. It has a layout of three naves covered by ribbed vaults supported on clustered columns with capitals decorated with plant motifs. Its sanctuary is polygonal and is one of the oldest parts of the church, dating from the second half of the 14th century. The bell tower was the tallest in the city until the 19th century.

The beautiful Gothic Church of San Nicolás de Bari, declared a Historic-Artistic Monument, has two doorways, one Gothic and the other Renaissance, the work of Andrés de Vandelvira.

Inside, the chapel of Dean Ortega stands out, with it Plateresque doorway and a polychrome wrought-iron gate, made by Juan Álvarez de Molina in Toledo. The doorway has a large triumphal arch, framed by columns with rings of skulls symbolising death and the heads cherubs that evoke the hope of resurrection.
