I like to walk in this area because I can see the old but beautiful typical building of Cuenca. I can hear the sound of gurgling running water from the little river. The river itself has clear water and some wild happy ducks!

Definitely worth a visit and do a walking tour. Plenty of places of interest and loads of history, always worth having a guide to get all the information.

Always wanted to visit here and not disappointed. Town is amazing but can be full of tourists. Places to eat on a Sunday and a Monday a bit thin on the ground but the SC11 circular walk is well recommended. Takes you away from town...More
