Murallas (Walls)

Walls of remote origin. A good part of the walled part coming from Alcázar, surrounded Segovia during the Medieval period.

Rebuilt in the 11th century, its stonework is of limestone masonry with big granite ashlars and turrets, and a series of blind arches. The door of San Andrés between the two robust towers is conserved along with the doors of San Cebrián and Santiago, both with horseshoe arches and main body of bolstered stalls. Originally it had two more doors that are now no longer there.
