It has a
long and proud history: its earliest inhabitants, the Numantines,
Roman legions in a siege that lasted eight months.
The Romans later rebuilt the
town as Numancia, about four kilometres
north of the present city.
Scoria has several old churches, including the Romanesque church of Santo Domingo
(de Silos) of the 12th century (National Monument).
Very famous are the Romanesque fašade and the portal of this church with figures
of the life of Christ.
The Dominicans received this church with its convent in 1570. They had to leave
Soria as a result of the Spanish legislation of 1835/37. Today the sisters
(Poor) Clares live in the convent beside the church.
