Spain – Historic Walled Town of Cuenca

Cuenca is a magical sight, dramatically standing above a river gorge with its famous “hanging houses” clinging to steep, rocky slopes. This UNESCO World Heritage city is one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Spain. With its cobblestone lanes, town square, and old mansions, Cuenca has wonderfully preserved its Old World character. Tourists enjoy wandering the ancient streets discovering picturesque alleys and hidden corners. Fascinating historic monuments and fabulous views are found at every turn. Cuenca also has outstanding art museums and festivals. For a rewarding cultural experience, visit during Easter to attend the Festival of Religious Music.
