We´ve just arrived back in Lyon, but I wanted to share a few pictures from my outings in & outside of Segovia today.
I´m practicing my shooting technique using the self-timer. Finding places to situate the camera was sometimes tricky and sometimes the photos turned out better than I planned.
I hiked to the outside of the town to get a good view of the Alcazar castle that I visited on Monday.
This is the view from the Vera Cruz Templar church.
Consecrated in 1208, Vera Cruz was built by the Knights Templar to house a fragment of the True Cross. It has a unique 12-sided exterior with a tower on the south side that is patterned on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, It is thus not really a parish church or even a monastic church, but primarily a shrine. The relic is now housed in the nearby village church at Zamarramala.
