Located in a hill, el Mirón Hill, in front of the Castle and next to the Medieval wall, an excellent place to start a route into the historic and literary Soria.
From the 15th century to the beginning of the 19th century, the province of Soria was one of the main fine wool production area of the Castile Crown. The biggest part of such wool was exported to other European countries, on which it was used to manufacture quality cloths.
Its foundation is attributed to San Francisco de Asís himself in 1214 after his visit to Soria on his way to Santiago de Compostela. Behind the Convent we can find the Becquer Corner, a pleasanr pedestrian area we recommend to visit at night.
