An amazing view from the bridge; not for the faint-hearted or those with fear of heights, obviously. You get a great view of the Casas Colgadas - hanging houses - from the bridge. Even here, people had signed and locked padlocks to the rails!

Staying at the Parador, which is the building pictured behind the bridge, you cross the bridge to enter the historic walled city of Cuenca (walking) The bridge is old, with wood planks and feels a little creaky, however I've been in scarier elevators. It is well used and obviously a good photo opportunity for many, the bridge offers great views... More

It was almost 2 hours drive from Madrid, but Cuenca was a pleasant surprise with its wonderul scenary with historic flavours.I would recommend to take half a day to go over to Cuenca. The views around the bridge is a highlight in Cuenca. We spent only 3-4 hours in town during daytime but I guess the night views should be... More

Cuenca looks best from this bridge. Thoroughly recommend a visit in daylight but also at night to see the city with the lights!

Beautiful town with lots of history. Our tour took us there on the way to Valencia from Madrid, and am I glad it did. Beautiful scenery, walked through the really neat town, and then we walked across this bridge. This was not the best thing for my fear of heights, but I decided to cross the bridge anyway. Wonderful views... More

This is the perfect place from which to see the hanging houses. The natural views are spectacular and a delight.

It looks a long way down and across, you walk across wooden decking type slats (like on a pier or boardwalk) which are more sturdy than you initially think! Great views, be careful if using an umbrella in the rain as quite a cross wind, well worth the experience even for my friend who has a fear of heights!
