The Church San Clemente 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 region of Castilla y Léon! However, some monuments don’t get the recognition they deserve even in my previous posts touch 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 Clemente of Segovia!


The Church or Iglesia de San Clemente, stands between the Calle del  Marquis de Mondéjar, Calle Gobernador Fernandez Jiméneza and Calle Doctor Sancho, is characterized by a semicircular apse with three paired arches, with columns that would have inside windows of half point, pedestals and capitals. It would preserve from its primitive Romanesque construction the portico, and two covers: the one that corresponds to the main nave, and the lateral one, which gives entrance to the church. The tower is of low elevation and was eliminated in the 18C. Altars would be baroque and Churrigueresque in style. At the beginning of the 20C, the congregation was added to the parent parish of San Millán.

Inside it has interesting paintings from the 13C of the Jesse tree. The temple is occupied by the nuns of María Reparadora, ( order established in Strasbourg , France in 1857) , which is why it is not open to visitors.

The quest continues for more, as Spain is everything under the sun! Never amazes me to find wonderful places to see ,no wonder is the no 2 spot on Earth for visitors . And numbers are from WTO-UN or United Nations World Tourism Organisation ,keeping numbers on travelers since 1949! Hope you enjoy this post on the Church San Clemente of Segovia as I.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all !!!
