As long as we’re on the subject of religious buildings, let’s take a look at the Church of the Vera Cruz in Segovia, Spain.
The building was dedicated in 1208, more than 800 years ago. Inside, you’ll find an elevated chamber within the main structure.
A staircase leads up to this inner sanctum.
There’s an altar within that chamber that you see in the next photo:
From up there you have a view down to the side chapels, such as this one:
You’ll also find this reliquary in a separate place:
The exterior also bears a number of carved columns that are worth investigating.
This is the third time I’ve visited this building. However, it was only the first time that I was able to go inside. Be sure to check the hours of operation prior to arrival.
