A top spot, but quite crowded. A must visit, though - it offers one of the best views towards the city.

As one would expect from a bridge up high in the mountains, it offers a good view with the associated nerve tingling.

This is one of the most popular vantage points from which to look across the river to see old town Cuenca and its "hanging houses" from a good perspective. Don't miss it. You can cross from old town itself, or climb up the road from new town and use the bridge to cross into old town.

This is a must-do while you are in Cuenca, unless you have a fear of heights. Walking across the bridge provides a great perspective of the "hanging houses" and great scenic views. The vertical drop-off is amazing.

During day time, it´s crowded with people taking picture of the casas colgantes, but at night, it´s a special experience (the bridge is illuminated at the bottom, so you´re in the dark when crossing it).

You cannot say the you have seen Cuenca until you have stood alone in the small hours in the centre of the bridge! It is a magical scene worthy of imitation on a James Bond set. Even better at dawn with the birdsong the only sound. Set your alarm!

Free to walk across and very popular spot for photos. If you do not like heights this is not for you as the sides are open metalwork and the railings relatively low.

The bridge gives you a breath-taking view of the valley, cliffs, and surrounding town below. You should definitely make a stop at the bridge if you are in Cuenca.

Good views of the old town & hanging houses. A very pretty area we walked back to our hotel over the other side of the bridge which took us to the newer part of the City by a path that went along the river.

Had a walk over the bridge today (took a while to find as sign posts aren't very good), and it's a great place to take photos of hanging houses and old town.
