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

Consecrated in 1208, and built by the Knights Templar to house a fragment of the True Cross (now in the nearby village church at Zamarramala). What more do you need to know? A beautiful sight from the Acazar, and a substantial and mysterious presence when...More

This unusual, 12-sided church is located some way outside the walls of Segovia, but is actually much nearer than might at first appear. We walked to it by descending the steps into the valley from the Alcazar. But do check opening times before setting off!...More

To think we almost missed getting inside (check the times!). We had done a morning dirve to the Castles at Coca and Turegano and noticed this quaint Romanesque Church in the valley across from the Alcazar. We really just stopped for photo ops of the...More

The church built in the 1200,s. It has a Knights Templar background perhaps, however that is now disputed. It is so worth walking to from Segovia, only around 15-20 mins walk. Great in its simplicity and awesome history.

I believe this church is around 1000 years old, and is generally attributed to the Templars. Interesting inside, built in the round. Has a nice view of the Alcazar.

Takes you back to in time. It has a charm all of its own, small but steeped in history. We took a walk down from the Alcazar. The walk down was great, so much to see along the way. Going up again is a different...More

Beautiful church which has a real atmosphere to it, based on the Holy Sepulchure and built by the Templars it's not a church in the conventional sense. I combined the visit with a walk back to Segovia via the Valle de Clamores, just wander back...More

We were able to get a great view of this former Templar church during our visit of the Alcazar which is located much higher on the hilltop.

Apparently modeled after the Church of the Holy Selpuchre in Jerusalem. Its a bit of a walk from the Alcazar, but definitely an interesting visit for those with a passion for religious buildings.
