The Parador Cuenca is situated directly across from the famous "Casas Colgadas" – the hanging houses. This UNESCO declared World Heritage city is as if carved right from the imposing limestone cliffs that jut up from the verdant Huecar valley floor. These houses are world famous – and justifiably so.

Cuenca has an amiable feel. Night time strolling through the city’s old quarter has a special appeal – as does hiking along the river below the city and gazing back up at the soaring, venerable "skyscrapers" of Cuenca.
A drive out to Ciudad Encantada will make for a fun half-day trip. The fantastical rock formations there are fascinating. Walk the pleasant trails that wander through them – take a picnic lunch and enjoy the incredible surroundings. On the drive there, or back – stop alongside the road and walk over to the "Ventana del Diablo" (sign posted) – you’ll be surprised!

The elegant Parador Cuenca here is a converted 16th century convent and many of the rooms have breathtaking direct views across to the famous "hanging houses." Frescos and ornate plasterwork are everywhere, and a soothing garden now fills the original cloister. This 4 star hotel assures a remarkable experience, and I’d suggest staying here for two nights.

The Parador is right in the Hoz del Huécar facing the Hanging Houses of Cuenca and accessed by the outstanding metal bridge, as is the old town. The N-III is the main road from Madrid via the Tarancón turn off, or, from Valencia, via Motilla del Palancar.
