Cuenca City

This enchanting medieval city, declared Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO, is surrounded by landscapes of incredible beauty. Among the town's most remarkable sights are the famous "Hanging Houses", the Gothic cathedral and the Museum of Abstract Art. In its surroundings there are several fantastic natural preserves, among them Ciudad Encantada, the "enchanted city", where erosion has created most bizarre forms.

The city, known as the 'Eagles nest' because of its position, high on a hill, is easily accessed by means of the N430/N320 highways and has a good infrastructure within the city. The city is separated from the nearby rock face by deep ravines in which the rivers Júcar and Huécar run.

The city is clearly divided into two parts; the old and the modern. The modern half offers very little history, mainly consisting of modern residences, tower blocks and apartments. The old part is one of the most wonderful cities in Spain and is worthy of several days exploration. We visited Cuenca in March 2003 and enjoyed our stay thoroughly.
