Romanesque church outside of Segovia. a beautiful example of a circular devotional church offering a beautiful view of the old city of Segovia. Obviously linked to the world of crusades and templars. The interior is absolutely Spartan and primitive. I see traces of frescoes on...More

Absolutely bunged full of history and almost expected to see Templar Knights seated around the place. Think Tuesday is a free day for EU citizens as we didn't get charged any entry. It's lovely inside and the walk from town is exhilarating and the walk...More

Interesting little church, near Segovia, with a very historical background. It is a temple currently in use, so your visit should be respectful. Nice and humble. In some way, intimate.

Build in XII century by Templar Knights. Round shape is different than other Romanesque Churches of the time. All construction is supported inside by kind of “pillar” which contains chapters on two levels. It is quite difficult to describe it. This kind of construction makes...More
