New England has one or more of these beautiful old churches in each town. Most of them are not easily photographed since they are only 10 feet from the main road in the center of town and there are power lines running in every direction.
Well, we traveled to New England with hopes of seeing a fine example of a white-steepled church that is so quintessentially New England. Guess what, they aren't very hard to fine. There is at least one in even the tiniest of towns, like this one in Deering, NH, population 1,912.
Iglesia San Millán is a fine Romanesque church located outside of the old walls of Segovia. Built between 1111 and 1124, it is one of the oldest churches in the city. The large church dominates a spacious plaza off of Avenida de Fernandex Ladreda, which leads to the famous aqueduct and passes another Romanesque church, San Clemente. Patterned closely on the cathedral of Jaca in Aragon, San Millán is especially notable for its pre-Romanesque mozarbic tower and porticoes with abundant Romanesque figurative carvings. Inside, there are three naves and three apses. The decoration is largely Baroque, but there are some Romanesque frescoes in the chancel.
