Also in the historical center you will pass by the “San Martin Church”, this church was built in the 12th century, it already existed in by the year 1117, as its abbot appears in the testament of Domingo Petit. The church is located in the current “Plaza de Juan Bravo”, which is about halfway between the “Santa María Cathedral” and the “Roman aqueduct”. It is a Romanesque temple of Mozarabic origin.
The temple differs in part from the original, as some parts were rebuilt or eliminated, as is the case with the central apse, which was replaced. It has three naves, a cross with a brick dome and a tripartite apse.
Of the temple, the bell tower stands out, which is in Romanesque - Mudejar style, and has brick arches over stone columns. Nice to have a short stop to take some pictures.

A very well preserved and beautiful church in a very attractive location. The Church of San Martín is located in the heart of Segovia, in the center of Calle Real, next to the Juan Bravo statue. San Martín church was built in the 12th century. Currently, the temple looks a bit different from the original because some parts have been reconstructed or eliminated. The temple has three naves, a beautiful bell tower and a portico gallery that surrounds almost the entire church. This portico has semicircular arches that rest on columns with Romanesque capitals. In the west facade, we see one of the largest Romanesque doors in Spain. Another great work of the Romanesque city of Segovia. A really great place to explore. Free admission.

Yeah, it's that old. A good place to include in your route from the Aqueduct to the Plaza Mayor.
It, with the adjacent small Plaza de Medina Campo, made a good stop for us to appreciate this century old piece, while catching our breath.

The San Martin Church has an impressive atrium which has round arches resting on columns with Roman capitals. The apses are in the Romanesque style. The church has a wonderful sculpture of Saint Francis of Assisi by Pedro de Mena and the Recumbent Christ by the Gregorio Fernandez.

In the Plaza de Juan Bravo square, this is a very ornate and beautiful building which shouldn’t be missed. If you are lucky enough to get inside it’s well worth it.

Between the Aqueduct and Plaza Mayor. Do not skip vising this church. Ornate alter but totally bare elsewhere. Another photo opportunity in Segovia

Built in 12th century and later modified to the present Romanesque structure, this church is big compared to the surrounding churches in Segovia and has numerous tall rounded openings called archivolts which isn't present in any other church in Segovia. Admission is free and spend at least 20 minutes inside the church to appreciate the structure which is so different from the others.

A building with three naves with three sections each, a huge brick bell tower and a magnificent ported gallery. Easily accessed when walking from the Aqueduct to El Alcazar

This is yet another most impressive and large Spanish Church.
It was built in the 12th century and is apparently still regularly well attended .
Once again owing to time constraints of the guided tour we were unable to spend time inside, but it appeared to be a little sparse.
Definitely worth seeing.

I was on a tour that stopped here. It is a very big and impressive church. Since it was a tour and I was rushed I was affected by it being closed for an hour for some reason so I only saw the outside. I did very much enjoy the part that I saw.
