Iglesia de la Vera Cruz, Segovia

Local nameIglesia de la Vera Cruz
LocationSegovia, Spain

The church of the True Cross is a Roman Catholic church located in the San Marcos district of the city of Segovia, in the autonomous community of Castile and León, in Spain. Formerly known as the Church of Holy Sepulchre, it is located to the north of the city, very close to the convent of San Juan de la Cruz, on the slope that ascends to Zamarramala, a town of which it was, for centuries, a parish church.

It consists of a nave with a dodecagonal floor plan that surrounds a small central two-story shrine, to which apses and the tower were added. It is one of the best-preserved churches of this style in Europe. It was declared a Spanish Property of Cultural Interest on 4 July 1919.
