A must-see when visiting Cuenca, and experience actually being at the bridge and enjoying the beautiful site. Careful not to drop your cellphone while taking photos.

From the bridge you will get your best views of the hanging houses. Once on the other side you can visit the Convento de San Pablo.

Nice and quiet place to visit. You see a lot of people crossing. You get a great view from the bridge. It moves a little bit while you walk on it.
