The city of Cuenca and its must-see sights
The fortified city of Cuenca has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. If you visit, you’ll have the opportunity to discover some of its most iconic sights. - The Hanging Houses, also called the Hanging Houses of Cuenca. They have become the city’s symbol. The name comes from the large cantilevered balconies over the Huécar River gorge. Did you know that the interior houses the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art? - The best panoramic view of the Hanging Houses can be seen as you cross the San Pablo Bridge. If you can, visit it during the day and night—you’ll love how the area is lit. - The Cathedral of Saint Mary and Saint Julian in Cuenca, predominantly Gothic but with elements of the Romanesque and Neo-gothic, is another one of the beautiful landmarks that can’t be missed—both from its main façade facing the Plaza Mayor, as well as its interior.
