hotels Cuenca

A beautiful and ancient city, it was declared a World Heritage Site. It is famous for its casas colgantes or ("hanging house") on the edge of the gorge of the river Huecar.

While its collection of historical buildings is not as impressive as Toledo or Salamanca, it offers a unique mixture of nature and human constructions. Its landscapes are particularly wonderful in autumn, due to the mix of green, yellow and red colours in the gorges of the two rivers. Cuenca, and the hanging houses, were featured in C. J. Sansom's 2006 novel, Winter in Madrid.
