  • Yeah, it's that old. A good place to include in your route from the Aqueduct to the Plaza Mayor. It, with the adjacent small Plaza de Medina Campo, made a good stop for us to appreciate this century....  more »
  • A building with three naves with three sections each, a huge brick bell tower and a magnificent ported gallery. Easily accessed when walking from the Aqueduct to El Alcazar  more »

  • Iglesia de San Martín (Saint Martin Church) - Built in the twelfth century, it already existed in 1117, because in the testament of Domingo Petit his abbot appears as a witness. It is located in the current square of Juan Bravo, halfway between the Cathedral of Santa María and the Roman aqueduct. It is a temple of Mozarabic origin with Romanesque style. The temple differs in part from the original, as some parts have been reconstructed or eliminated, as is the case of the central apse, which was replaced. It has three naves, a transept with a brick dome and a tripartite head. Of the temple they are remarkable the bell tower, that is of Romanesque-Mudejar style, and owns arches of brick on stone columns. It is also remarkable its porticoed gallery, which surrounds the entire church except the head. This portico has semicircular arches that rest on columns with Romanesque capitals. The cover of the western facade is one of the largest doors of Spanish Romanesque. It is a cover of five archivolts, decorated with plant motifs. It is sheltered by a portico, like a narthex, whose opening is a large set of archivolts supported by human statues representing characters from the Old Testament. (Wikipedia)
