This place is made from a natural cave. It is on a building that is used for religious reasons. There are various rooms such as those of the Heros, rock chapel dedicated to St. Michael. The church has a central octagonal shape. We have heard that tradition states that in the 6th century, the noble soriano Saturio divided his wealth among the poor and went to live in caves along the Duero. His memory was lost, and in the last quarter of s. XVI, his remains were found and increased devotion to the eremitaño to the point of building a temple in his honor and name patron of the city.
The cloister of San Juan de Duero is a marvel of architectural art. Faced with the simplicity and sobriety of the church, the cloister stands as young Adonis to a beautiful but simple villager. Their intertwined arches seem to threaten cultural variety that we try so hard to lavish today. The simple church shows small windows protected by sheets of alabaster and two wayward shrines that to show us their mutual disagreements, a tapered Bonnet has been placed on one and a circular one on the other. It is regrettable, as in other monuments Soria, the progressive deterioration of the buildings by the dreaded "bad stone".

We could not access the collegiate church of this splendid religious monument as it was undergoing restoration. It will serve as a venue for a new exhibition of the Ages of Man, to be held in Soria in approximately May next year. The cloister of this church, built in the XII century, is another marvel of soriano Romanesque. However, we should mention the multiple damage caused by the "scholar" representatives of Christian culture: without any regard or appreciation for the value of this cloister was maimed in an unprecedented way. The south side of this impressive piece was totally destroyed and the east side partially. And all this to expand the width of the Cathedral. Gaya Nuño said that it is the most beautiful in Spain, due to the elegance of proportions, the slenderness of the arches and new decor.
