Full description
Discover the rich legacy and historical significance of Cuenca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cuenca, “the Hanging City”, is one of the most remarkable cities in Spain due to its intangible and material heritage. This city was built in a stretch of land between two gorges, originally inhabited for its strategic location. Let your experienced tour guide take you through the highlights of this fascinating city on this 3-hour tour and immerse yourself in Spanish history.

Your first stop will be Cuenca Cathedral, the first Gothic-style cathedral built in Spain. You might be tricked by its outside appearance, but once you step inside, you’ll be amazed by its architectural features. Then, head to the Hanging Houses of Cuenca—step out onto their balconies that look out over giant ravines. San Pablo Bridge will be your next destination, perfect for a thrilling walk, even if you have a fear of heights. Next, visit the city’s town center, which is full of churches, stately houses, and old convents that, even nowadays, preserve the tradition of prayer. Finally, head to the Castle district, where you’ll really feel on top of the city: look out from its viewpoints to the canyons around you.  

Considering everything that this city has to offer its visitors, it’s easy to conclude: Cuenca is a unique must-see on your trip to Spain.
