Garray is located in the mid-northern part of the province and is in the touristic route that goes through the valley.

 

The highest part of the locality is the Muela Hill where the Archaeological Site Numantia can be found (1,074 metres above sea level). It is in a prime location in terms of transportation; the N-111 road that goes from Soria to Logroño, and the SO-615 that leads to Calahorra and Arnedo all pass through Garray. There are also some regional roads that connect this locality to other ones such as Tardesillas, Fuentecantos and Velilla de la Sierra.

 

The most interesting spots to visit are the Douro and Tera riverbanks where you can go for a swim. There is a stone bridge with 16 pointed arches that was built in the 16th century over previous ones that crossed the Douro River. This bridge is one of the main crossing points for the eastern Sorian Royal Drovers' Road (Cañada Real), and is one of the main reasons Garray exists to this day.

 

Due to Garray’s strategic location as one of the crossing points of the Douro River, the Eastern Sorian Royal Drovers' Road (Cañada Real Soriana Oriental) seems to have to pass through this town. This track that comes from the area of Cameros in La Rioja, or from the region of Tierras Altas, takes advantage of Garray as the spot the unifies all the several tracks into one up until the capital.

 

The church of San Juan Bautista that dates back to the third quarter of the 16th century still preserves some Gothic elements in the major chapel.

 

The Numantia Archaeological Centre (Aula Arqueológica del Cerco de Numancia) is where you can complete your visit to this site. It is located in the old school and has two rooms where they have recreated representations of the civilisations that fought here. You can learn about the weapons and infrastructures, and also learn interactively with videos and videos and scale models of the site.

 

The chapel of the Martyr Saints is an interesting example of the late Romanesque style that is still present in the province. On one of the exterior ashlar apses you can see the year 1231 engraved in the stone that could indicate the year that the temple was finished.
