Whenever you talk to Spanish people and ask them where to go or what interesting cities to visit, they recommend you to see Cuenca. And after today, I understand why!
Those of you who have been to Tuscany, Italy, might have visited Pitigliano, a picturesque little village built on a rock. And Cuenca reminded me lot of it!
Compare these two pictures I’ve taken and compare! Amazing, right?
The interesting places to visit in Cuenca I found in the old town. Narrow streets and stairs lead up the rock to the top where you have a breathtaking view on the new part of Cuenca and its surroundings. The best pictures I made are from the bridge which connects Parador de Cuenca and the old village. Here you have a perfect view to the most famous perspective of Cuenca: las casas colgadas or the hanging houses with their wooden balconies.
Although I’m not a religious person, I visit churches on my travels. Always. I don’t know why but I think they always reveal something beautiful. I’m very happy I did so today because the yellow light in the Catedral de Santa María y San Julián de Cuenca was very cool. Don’t you think?
Tomorrow: Toledo! Olé!
