Between two rivers

The Old City of Cuenca is situated on a cliff between rivers Júcar and Huécar; the ruins of a 13th century castle, ancient churchs and convents, built on this high place, made Cuenca a very attractive town.

La antigua ciudad de Cuenca está situada en un acantilado entre dos ríos, el Júcar y el Huécar; las ruinas de un castillo del siglo XIII, antiguas iglesias y conventos construidos en esta elevación, hacen de Cuenca una ciudad muy atractiva.

    I loved the small city of Cuenca, so I was interested in your "take". You've given a delightful "tour" of this incredible place. You and I were impressed by the same places, churches, and activities. Thanks so much.

    Fundación Antonio Pérez -- a convent, a labyrinth, and a museum of modern art all in one?? Sounds incredible! This I would like to see...! Great new updates, Andrea!

    A small, ancient town that's filled with wonderful modern art museums! I could find myself delightfully lost in a town like this! Another insightful page, Andrea!

    Vertiginoso!. In my eyes, the real Spain. I will personnally give Vaclava a guided tour of the area´s hidden treasures.
