With its characteristic semi-circular arches and the use of fired clay, Mudejar is one of the principal architectural styles to be found in this region and Segovia in particular is home to many fine examples. The Mudejar style reached its golden age between the 13th and 16th centuries, as reflected in buildings such as the Church of San Justo in the capital and other temples to be seen in the province, such as the Monastery of Santa María la Real de Nieva and the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción y San Sebastián / the Palace of Cardenal Espinosa de Martín Muñoz de las Posadas.
The striking use of brickwork can clearly be seen on this interesting route that takes visitors to the Parish Church of San Andrés en Montejo de Arévalo, the Church of San Cristóbal in San Cristóbal de la Vega or Coca Castle. In Cuéllar, visitors should take the time to visit the Mudejar Art Interpretation Centre, housed in the Church of San Martín.
This route also includes the following sites of interest: Segovia Aqueduct, the Parish Church of Melque de Cercos, San Nicolás Tower in Coca, the Church of San Benito in Samboal; in Cuéllar, San Basilio Arch, the Palace of Peter the Cruel and Cuéllar Castle, as well as the Parish Church of Pinarejos or the Church of El Salvador in Fuentepelayo.
