General / Tourist Information - Soria


  • Soria, a city of approximately 40,000 inhabitants, lies at around 140 miles to the northeast of Madrid, in the Autonomous Community of Castile and Leon. It is a safe, walkable city. Most attractions, hotels, and restaurants are within a 20-minute walk from the city center, where the Centro Cultural Palacio de la Audiencia, the Colloquium venue, is located.
  • 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 in the evening (the sorianos' omnipresent "rebeca"). On the plus side, the sun sets past 10pm during summertime. This gives sorianos and visitors plenty of hours to enjoy the city and its surroundings.
