Full description

Explore the remarkably intact townscape of Cuenca on a night-time walking tour. See the medieval buildings of Plaza Mayor stacked on 2 deep river gorges. Walk through narrow winding streets and cross the San Pablo bridge to admire tall houses with wooden balconies hanging over the sheer cliffs. 

Follow your guide through a network of cobbled streets while listening to the history and legends of this medieval fortress town. Enjoy the impressive views of the Júcar and Huécar gorges, passing by the most emblematic corners of Cuenca's old town.

Arrive at Plaza Mayor to look at the two most iconic monuments in the town – the arcaded Town Hall and the Cuenca Cathedral. Marvel at the old-looking facade rebuilt in neo-Gothic style in 1902 with a magnificent Renaissance doorway. 

Finally, head to the San Pablo bridge area. Get on this iron and wood footbridge that crosses the Huécar River to get the best views of the hanging houses of Cuenca – an emblem of the town – that look even more stunning at night in the floodlights.
