The Arrabal de San Milln or Arrabal Mayor, the center of the old Morera and which was the most beautiful in the city, is located in the southwest of the city. It was perfectly preserved until, at the beginning of the century, it was adulterated without any urban respect. Fortunately, the church of San Milln survived, which is not only one of the best temples in the city, but also one of the Spanish Romanesque, declared a National Monument on June 3, 1931.

San Milln is the largest Romanesque church in the city of Segovia

To access it, you have to go to the Plaza del Azoguejo and walk along the wide pedestrian avenue of Fernndez Ladreda. On your right is this magnificent building.

The temple of San Milln, next to the church of the Monastery of Santa Mara la Real de Sacramenia, is the one with the greatest monumentality of the Segovian Romanesque, reaching cathedral dimensions, as evidenced by its 50 meters in length, and twenty meters in height up to the dome of the transept.

If we except the arcaded galleries, added years later, it reproduces the construction scheme of the Cathedral of Jaca. Its construction would take place, therefore, between 1111 and 1126, during the reign in Castile of the Aragonese Alfonso I el Batallador. Later it underwent some additions in the thirteenth century and reforms in the seventeenth, being restored twice, the first in 1949 by the architects Cabello and Ladrada and the second, decades later.

It has a floor plan of three naves separated by semicircular arches that ride, in the manner of the seo jaquesa, on cruciform pillars with attached semi-columns alternating with large free-standing columns.

Se conserv perfectamente hasta que, a comienzos de siglo, se adulter sin ningn respeto urbanstico. Por fortuna, sobrevivi la iglesia de San Milln que no slo es uno de los mejores templos de la ciudad, sino del romnico espaol, declarado Monumento Nacional el 3 de junio de 1931.

San Milln es la iglesia romnica mas grande de la ciudad de Segovia

Para acceder a ella hay que situarse en la Plaza del Azoguejo y recorrer la amplia avenida peatonal de Fernndez Ladreda. A su derecha queda este magnfico edificio.

El templo de San Milln, junto a la iglesia del Monasterio de Santa Mara la Real de Sacramenia, es el de mayor monumentalidad del romnico segoviano, alcanzando dimensiones catedralicias, como lo demuestran sus 50 metros de longitud, y la veintena de metros de altura hasta la cpula del transepto.

Si exceptuamos las galeras porticadas, aadidas aos ms tarde, reproduce el esquema constructivo de la Catedral de Jaca. Su construccin se llevara a cabo, por tanto, entre 1111 y 1126, durante el reinado en Castilla del aragons Alfonso I el Batallador. Posteriormente sufri algunos aadidos en el siglo XIII y reformas en el XVII, siendo restaurada en dos ocasiones, la primera en 1949 por los arquitectos Cabello y Ladrada y la segunda, dcadas ms tarde.

Posee planta de tres naves separadas mediante arcos formeros de medio punto que cabalgan, al modo de la seo jaquesa, sobre pilares cruciformes con semicolumnas adosadas alternando con grandes columnas exentas.
