In Spain, there are semi-autonomous regions that have some reponsibility for their own affairs. These semi-autonomous regions have capital cities. Cuenca is both a semi-autonomous region, and the capital city. This page will hopefully explore a bit of both.
To most people who have visited however Cuenca is symbolised by two things. The old part of the town, and the Enchanted City.
The Old Town is actually quite a small area, up on top of a very steep hill. The buildings for the most part are very old and picturesque, and the streets are pretty narrow.
The Enchanted City is a large parkland area with a lot of very curiously shaped rocks which bear an uncanny resemblance to other objects. Some amazingly so, others need a bit of imagination and then some!
