General Information

Soria, a city of 40,000 inhabitants, is located in the Autonomous Community of Castile and Leon. It lies at approximately 140 miles to the northeast of Madrid.

Soria is a very safe, very walkable city. Most of its attractions, hotels, and restaurants are within a 20-minute walk from the city center, where the Colloquium venue is located. The venue address is:

Centro Cultural Palacio de la Audiencia

c/Plaza Mayor, s/n

42002 Soria

As an added benefit, the sun sets past 10pm during the summer. This gives sorianos and visitors plenty of daylight hours to enjoy the city and its surroundings. Summer temperatures may reach the 80's and 90's during the day, yet drop significantly in the evenings. This often makes it necessary to wear a sweater or jacket in the evenings (sorianos' omnipresent "rebeca").
