I’ve said it before, but Spain is full of hidden little treasures… you just have to leave the well-beaten track of the Costas to find them.
Cuenca is less than an hour from Madrid on the high speed train and gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 1996, mainly due to the medieval “hanging houses” which are precariously balanced on the edge of a limestone cliff.
I had the pleasure of visiting the town last weekend for the first time after spending a couple of days on business in Madrid, and it was a welcome respite from the crowded and noisy city (the wine and tapas was pretty good too, and extremely affordable!)
