#2 of 18 in Things to do in Soria
Constructed between the 12th and 13th centuries, and once the headquarters of the Knights of St. John, Monasterio de San Juan de Duero (Arcos de San Juan de Duero) is an incredible example of Romanesque religious architecture. Wander the courtyards and hallways, part of a working monastery until the 18th century, and imagine the lives of the monks and knights who called them home. Examine the rows of intricately carved archways lining the cloisters, each from a slightly different time period, or look up at the vaulted interior of the church chapel. Parking is available near the site, although the monastery is also a short walk from the town of Soria.

  • A large cloister is well preserved and explained. Church also attached in good condition and would be whether to tour alone.

  • An amazing site, the cloister and the Church have a unique mixture of styles which makes it a great place to take advantage of the wealth that has, is small, but explains the cultural richness of the city. Magnificent and interesting cloister

  • Very fast, so just visit the Church, very small but very authentic, with some amazing and very austere capitals, and the cloister, with the curiosity of their bows in four different styles. Recommended for lovers of Romanesque architecture.
