Depart Madrid and journey by bus to the city of Cuenca, built on rocks that lie between the rivers Júcar and Huécar. Be captivated by the dramatic setting and marvel at the engineering skills of those who built houses, cathedrals and more on the side of the cliffs!

Admire the façade of Spain's first Gothic cathedral, rebuilt after it crumbled down in 1902. Explore the extraordinary complex of Hanging Houses (Casas Colgadas), built on the edge of the gorge in the 15th century. See the amazing 16th-century Puente de San Pablo (Bridge of St. Paul), designed to connect the old town with the Convent of St. Paul.
