The Church San Andrés of Segovia !

Ok so I am back in this wonderful Castilian town of my love. I heard about since birth, but finally came to see it in 1990 and has been an everlasting love affairs since. Of course, I am talking about Segovia ,in the Province of Segovia, and the autonomous community of Castilla y Léon! However, some monuments don’t get the recognition they deserve even in my previous posts touched only by word. I like to split these monuments into single entries and tell you on each as they deserve, It is time I tell you a bit more about the Church San Andrés of Segovia!


The Church or Iglesia de San Andrés is located in the Plaza of La Merced. The Convent of Our Lady of Merced, founded in 1367, existed in this same square. The church is located on the west side of the square and, although subjected to alterations, still preserves its primitive Romanesque style two apses, with half-point windows, columns, capitals, corbels and Byzantine moldings. It has a three-body tower, plastered and with spire, sharp and slated. The north cover is the primitive. The south cover has a statue of the holy titular, Saint Andrews. The interior has three naves. The main altarpiece consists of two bodies, occupying the center statues and the side paintings. It would also contain the altar of the demolished convent adjoining. Sculptures of Our Lady of the Mercedes, San Ramón and San Pedro Nolasco.
