Segovia information

Sepúlveda information

Declared to be a Historic-Artistic Site in 1951, the monuments and streets of Sepúlveda bear the mark of the Romanesque style, inherited from its period of greatest splendour, from the 11th to the 13th centuries.

Sepúlveda is home to the first Romanesque church built in the province, El Salvador, from the 11th century, which consists of a single semi-circular apsidal nave and a separate tower. Also noteworthy is the sanctuary of Santa María de la Peña, from the 12th century, located at one end of the town, overlooking one of the steepest gorges on the river Duratón. Its most characteristic feature is the tympanum, situated on the entrance door and unique among the Segovia region's Romanesque legacy. Other buildings of interest are the fortress of Fernán González, the walls as well as some of the old doors and the main square. A few kilometres from town is the Hoces del río Duratón Nature Reserve, where you will find the hermitage of San Frutos, patron saint of Segovia, and the ruins of the monastery of Nuestra Señora de la Hoz.
