Iglesia Nuestra Señora de la Asunción

La Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, en Sequera de Fresno, se ubica dentro del caserío de la localidad, actualmente perteneciente a la Tierra de Riaza al noreste de la provincia de Segovia.

Aunque existen algunas dudas al respecto de su cronología, suele aceptarse la primera mitad del siglo XIII como probable época de construcción, atribución dada especialmente gracias a su escultura, ya que no se conserva documentación textual fiable. En el siglo XVI se añadió la torre y a lo largo del siglo XVIII fue objeto de importantes reformas que alteraron especialmente el acceso principal, la nave y el sistema de cubiertas.
