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.

Fantastic church from the 1200s - One of only a few such churches that remain in the world. Great architecture and brilliant piece of the past, in a really well preserved and unaltered state.

If you are lucky enough to be in Segovia do yourself a favor and stop in at the Iglesia de la Vera Cruz. It's a unique structure and offers some great views of the Alcazar from below.

Wonderful old crusader church. Highly recommended. Atmospheric. Wonderful old murals. This was my favourite church in Segovia (however most of them were not open). My understanding is that there are roughly 17 churches in Segovia.

The folks up in the castle used to come here for their Sunday services. It is in amazing condition and an interesting architectural contrast to the Alcazar. It is twelve-sided, representing the apostles, which is certainly a nice touch for a church. See this on...More

Very, very old church with a lot of history. You can walk through it and go up the staircase. Went with a tour guide who explained everything well. Great for those who love history and architecture.
