On the way to the Cathedral, walking from the aqueduct by the bustling main street, we are in the Plaza de Medina del Campo which is a beautiful Romanesque church, the most notable parts being its atrium and XV century tower. It was a surprise to me that this church is absolutely nothing like the buildings around it ...
This beautiful, romanesque church is located near the house-museum of Antonio Machado. It has an imposing tower that can be seen from various points around the city, and an arcaded gallery that transports visitors back in time. It was restored in the early twentieth century, years after being declared a National Monument.
This church is square on the outside, with brickwork walls. The gate dates back to the Renaissance period. Look at the altar for some really magnificent artwork. It is dedicated to the patron saint of Segovia, and is in a truly stunning setting: the mall known as the Fuencisla, near the neighbourhood of San Marcos. From here, you can enjoy one of the most breathtaking views of the Alcazar.
The Chapel of Santisimo Sacramento is along the interior courtyard of the Cathedral of Segovia, near the Cathedral Museum. The highlight of this small and often-overlooked chapel is not only the altar area, but the intricately-carved dome area is simply spectacular. The lighting on the ornate sculptures and molding of the domes is gorgeous and the chapel invites you to sit down and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
This chapel is definitely not one of the top 5 in Segovia, but if you have time to explore the nooks and crannies of the Cathedral, it's a worthwhile visit. Enjoy!
The church of San Andrés is situated in the old town of Segovia, very close to the cathedral, which gives it a special charm. This is a beautiful 12th Century Romanesque church featuring an impressive facade. Its exterior is made of brick. The Mudejar tower features a slate roof and two apses that are next to it. The largest was built in the twelfth century with the rest of the church, but later was made smaller and has less relevance. Another element that stand outside the church of San Andrés is the cross that is on the front. It is a cross made from the same stone, that brings elegance to the building and makes it different from the rest. On the inside, it is a rather simple church but certainly not without charm, anyway, I visiting the outside of this place and its surroundings, because on one side it is surrounded by stone houses and on the other by a park that invites you to stroll through the place, enjoying the tranquility.
