Full description

Explore the medieval city of Cuenca and the Huécar and Júcar Gorges on a guided tour. Discover the medieval streets of this UNESCO World Heritage city and its historic cathedral. Transition from city to nature and make your way to San Pablo Bridge for views of the gorges.

A pesar del mal tiempo. La experiencia fue maravillosa y la historia contada desde el punto de vista del arte te da un conocimiento extra. Nos ha gustado mucho y la guía Marta ha sido genial.
