Things to Do in Cuenca
Just a few hours from Madrid or Valencia, Cuenca is one of the best weekend getaways in Spain. However, this natural and urban wonder is a jewel yet to be discovered by massive tourism. Come and enjoy Cuenca at your own pace, without entry lines or queues of tourists. There are interesting art centers, such as the Museum of Abstract Art in the Hanging Houses, the Antonio Saura Foundation, the Cuenca Museum and others. And of course, taverns and restaurants in Cuenca offer a huge variety of traditional dishes at very affordable prices. Our favorite local dishes are 'morteruelo' (shredded meat pâté with spices) and 'ajo arriero' (egg, potato, cod and garlic pâté served cold). Finally, tourists can take fantastic excursions to natural areas such as the Enchanted City, Torcas de los Palancares, Canada del Hoyo Lagoons, Molino de las Chorreras Waterfall, Callejones de Las Majadas and many more wonders.
