Firstly - if you stay in the Parador, this is the only reasonable way to get to the old town - unless you want to trek down, down, down and then up, up and up the gorge. The slender, pedestrian bridge has quite a low guard rail and does move a bit when loaded with tourists. The views from it... More

Cuenca is a little town on the cliffs and the best way to see it is from this bridge. You have to hike up a hill but it's nothing big, and then you're right there! It's absolutely beautiful. You can then go across the bridge and into the streets where the houses are, or what we did, was go across... More

Wonderful surprise in Spain: the town... More

Bridge will give you the best view of this amazing town, what an unbelievable, panoramic view! Don't be scared by other comments, the bridge is not scary and the drive to Cuenca is well worth it!

The bridge has one of the best photo spots of the hills of Cuenca. The "colgadas" houses can be seen in full from the bridge.

As many have said, the views from the bridge are breath-taking. If you have a problem with heights, you may not make it all the way across. I started, but then it got really windy and the vibrations were a bit too much for me. Telling myself about the stability and soundness of the structure didn't help. I tried again... More
