About the Event
Ciudad Encantada On the outskirts of Cuenca, the must-see attraction is the Ciudad Encantada, a path of rock sculptures that were formed as a result of a natural karst phenomenon. Some of these rocks have adopted shapes reminiscent of living beings and human constructions, such as a dog, a seal, mushrooms, a turtle or a convent.
Cuenca Only 170 km from Madrid, there is a fascinating city that seems to be suspended between the rocks: Cuenca, whose historic centre is perched on a promontory at the intersection of two deep gorges. In the old town, the historic buildings are perfectly integrated into the surrounding nature, as if they were a spontaneous continuation of it, and the narrow streets are interspersed among tall houses with wooden balconies overlooking the gorge, which are known as the Casas Suspendidas (Suspended Houses) because of their particular position.
