Don't know what to do in Cuenca? We have plenty of answers for you! This city in La Mancha is sure to surprise you with its blend of art, culture, and nature. One of the first places to visit in Cuenca is the historic walled town, which declared a World Heritage Site and is home to a number of fantastic sites, including castles and historic neighborhoods.

Taking a walk down to the Jucar River is one of the most popular Cuenca activities. Look at the old town over the gorges for truly spectacular views. But without doubt the most popular Cuenca attractions are the Hanging Houses. They are buildings opposite the mouth of Huécar River that are named for their hanging balconies.
