08 Feb Winter getaway to Cuenca
Cuenca, a World Heritage Site, is a city that seems to be taken from a fairy tale, the perfect destination to admire beauty in all its extension of the word. A beauty that is latent in its architecture, its heritage and its nature.
Among the essentials: its Hanging Houses, rural Gothic style represent one of the main tourist attractions of the city and one of the most charming places; bridge of San Pablo, from where you will have a perfect view of Cuenca; the “Castle”, composed of the few remaining remnants of the old wall; Arco Bezudo, the only medieval gate that remains standing. When older, its Cathedral, with a neo-Gothic facade, is impressive and keeps the Cathedral Treasure, of great artistic value; Museum of Abstract Art with a large collection of Spanish abstract art located in San Martín neighborhood (the perfect place to soak up the spirit of the city).
Do not forget to enjoy the spectacular views offered by some of the viewpoints, especially at sunset or walks along the banks of Huécar and Júcar, surrounded by nature. If you like nature, visit the birth of Cuervo River or the Enchanted City where you will see the rocks with the most peculiar silhouettes in the world. And, before arriving here, enjoy Ventano del Diablo, a kind of viewpoint with unbeatable views of the Júcar and Sierra de Cuenca basins.
To regain strength nothing better than the rich and varied gastronomy of Cuenca. Taste morteruelo, garlic arriero or zarajos. A gastronomy conditioned by the landscapes and the climate of the area that has managed to combine tradition with new culinary trends.
