Aerial footage shot at the Iglesia de la Vera Cruz in Segovia (Spain)
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Spain's Church of the True Cross (Iglesia de la Vera Cruz) is one of the country's most famous. Seen here in this drone video by niropter, it's located in the city of Segovia, about 95 km (about 60) northwest of Madrid. Once attributed to the Knights Templar, it's now believed that the church was the work of a different medieval military-religious order: the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre. Built in the Romanesque style, the church later came under the control of the Knights Hospitaller aka the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
Consecrated in 1208, Vera Cruz was built by the Knights Templar to house a fragment of the True Cross. It is thus not really a parish church or even a monastic church, but primarily a shrine. Vera Cruz has a unique 12-sided exterior with a tower on the south side. Its shape is patterned on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, where according to legend the True Cross was found by St. Helena in the 4th century. vimeo.com/niropter youtube.com/user/niropter niropter.blogspot.com Song: Assaf Rinde - Heartfelt Grace.
