Fodor's Expert Review Vera Cruz

Segovia Religious Building/Site/Shrine

This isolated Romanesque church on the outskirts of town was built in 1208 for the Knights Templar. Like other buildings associated with this order, it has 12 sides, inspired by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. It's about a 45-minute walk outside town (you can see this church on a cliff side from the castle windows), but the trek pays off in full when you climb the bell tower and see all of Segovia silhouetted against the Sierra de Guadarrama.
