The Way of Saint James, besides bringing pilgrims through Soria, it also brought architectural styles that were already being used on religious buildings throughout France and Italy, such as in Cluny and Lombardy. This was how Romanesque art first appeared in San Esteban de Gormaz where the church of San Miguel is considered as one of the oldest Romanesque buildings in Castile due to an inscription on one of its capitals with the year 1081.

 

French, Muslim and Aragonese artistic influences as well as from the nearby workshop in Silos were incorporated by Sorian craftsmen. Towards the end of the 12th century, they started building simple ribbed-vaults and other more complex structures. There are more than 300 Romanesque buildings in the province, reason why it is not hard to find a masterpiece in any of our villages. There are also more than 20 arcaded temples in the province.
