#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.

  • No doubt a wonderful site with arches intersecting as I have seen few. The worst, the guardian who seems more a jailer than a cultural employee. What most unpleasant!

  • Reminds me of Bécquer and its legends. I moved to that world. An atrium of strange columns. And memories of the past. Perhaps you find the handkerchief of Beatrice and Alonso was back.

  • Arches of half point, Horseshoe, intersected... and all in the same cloister! ... on the banks of the Douro, near the Mount of las Animas. Precious ciborios of the simple Church, interesting capitals.
