Casas Colgadas in Cuenca

Casas Colgadas in Cuenca © Robert Bovington
 
The beautiful and ancient city of Cuenca is steeped in history and perfectly preserved and that is why UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. Famous for its 'Hanging Houses', there are many other reasons why this city is so special. The old town is perched on a precipice above two deep gorges carved out by the rivers Huécar and Júcar. It is here that the medieval Casas Colgadas literally overhang the Huécar gorge.
