Definitely not for anyone afraid of heights, but do your best to be brave and walk across to see a spectacular view of the city. It's even better at night!

Originally we were just going to drive by on our way north. It had been years since we had seen the hanging houses. When we got there it was obvious the bridge was the best viewing point. But even the bridge was a bit scary....More

What a surprise this city has been. One of the most scenic views of the Casas colgadas or hanging houses imaginable. The photos don't do it justice. If youre in Madrid this place is a must visit. Incredible.

If you are in Cuenca this is a must-see...... the bridge is super safe and the vistas from it are spectacular. Take a wide angle lens or do a panoramic shot from the bridge and impress your family and friends!

Walk up to the bridge to get a great view of the hanging houses. Also the parador hotel is by the side of the bridge ... pop in for a glass of wine and enjoy the surroundings.
