And then you arrive to San Martín square, an amazing place full of medieval palaces and towers.

At left, romanesque church of San Martín. Then, several 15th century palaces like the Lozoya tower.

The Royal Jail, nowadays a library.

We can take two ways: at left, the jewry. At right, the Plaza Mayor.

Segovia by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

This door is the entry to the Corpus Christi convent.

Segovia by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

Segovia by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

But the church of the convent is in fact the old medieval synagogue, mudéjar, 14th century. It copies the model of Santa María la Blanca of Toledo synagogue, as a reference for all the spanish jews of the middle ages.

We can keep on walking in the jewry, in the low part of the city.

Crossing the gate, that's the end of Segovia, because there is Clamores river and the canyon.

The walls.

This is the synagogue, embedded in the wall.

Let's get in again.

This is Andrés Laguna renaissance palace. In 1492 the jews were expelled from Spain... but the fact is a big amount of them stayed in the country, converted into christians (true or false christians). Andrés Laguna was an important doctor son of converted jews.

I love those wood carvings of Death and the Maiden. And the old loom and spinning wheel.
