Welcome to Cuenca, Spain

Tourism in Cuenca

line

Cuenca's picturesque old town sits astride a steep-sided spur that drops precipitously on either side to the deep gorges of the Júcar and Huécar rivers. Near to a city there is the railway connecting Madrid with Valencia and the road link with Teruel and Ciudad Real.

 

Around the Moorish town's narrow, winding streets grew the Gothic and Renaissance city, its monuments built with the profits of the wool and textile trade. The main sight is the cathedral, one of the most original works of Spanish Gothic, with Anglo-Norman influences. One ofthe picturesque Hanging Houses, which jut out over the Huécar ravine, has been converted into the exellent Museum of Abstract Art.

 

The big altar of a Cathedral belongs to Ventura Rodriguez's hand. Besides that it possesses magnificent iron lattices of XV century. Doors concerning to Chapter Halls is a work of Berruguete. And in a museum the Byzantian storehouse of relics unique in Spain is exposed.
