This is a beautiful old church full of history! If you are at all in to the history of Malta, this church becomes even more appealing and interesting!

A 12th century church, that's definitely rare! From above at the old city center, this church cannot be missed. Its typical octagonal shape immediately attracts your view. We walked from above to the beginning of the country side where this church lies, but you could...More

This structure is where the knights used to go to to be blessed before going into battle. All of the windows are small and have alabaster inset in them to allow light into what would have been lit by candles. This church is below the...More

I had sighted this building from the battlements of the Alcazar and it piqued my curiosity. Well, even after a closer external look, my curiosity is still piqued as we were unable to get access. The church was constructed by the Knights Templar in the...More

Interesting little church, near Segovia, with a very historical background. It is a temple currently in use, so your visit should be respectful. Nice and humble. In some way, intimate.

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
