The building that houses IE University in Segovia, where young students of some ninety nationalities are currently undertaking their university studies, often catches the attention of passers by. It’s not unusual to see groups of people stop and admire what was the first Dominican convent to be built in Spain, sometime in the thirteenth century. It was subsequently rebuilt in the fifteenth century in the times of Isabel and Fernando, the sovereigns who held the crowns of Castile and Aragon, and rebuilt for the final time in the nineteenth century. If you’re in Segovia one of these days, the Santa Cruz la Real Convent is a must-see, and will provide you with some great takes for your travel photo album.
