This a long slightly swing at first walkway across to the old city. It is very high and if it were in NZ we'd attach a bungy jump immediately. Splendid view down if you can bear... read more

This a long slightly swing at first walkway across to the old city. It is very high and if it were in NZ we'd attach a bungy jump immediately. Splendid view down if you can bear to look, this connects the Subida a San Pablo to the hanging houses area. Look for the interesting signs giving information on the sites... More

Bridge over spectacular gorge with great views . It also seems to have become part of the fashion for padlocks

This is a pretty good experience. Myself, im not scared of heights, but this was pretty scary. Its a metal support, but with wooden planks. I thought the planks looked worn out and I thought it would brake. Ofcoase its probably really safe, but it made me scared.

It is a must do in Cuenca and offers great views of the hanging houses of which there are only a few remaining and have been well restored and also the ridges of the houses which were built on the ridge line and make for a spectacular photo opportunities.

Staying at the Parador, this bridge is an essential way into the town of Cuenca with its jumble of terraces perched at a dizzying height over the gorge the bridge crosses. It is not an elegant nor naturally graceful bridge looking more like meccano than the sweeping curves allowed by modern construction but is light, robust and situated perfectly to... More

Few dream bridges float into the netherworld this gracefully and so mysteriously as Puento de Pablo. I have crossed this footbridge several times over a span of memory years and love the quiet trust. One of Spain's hidden delights and a pilgrim's quest.

Great view of the city from this bridge, but the side rails are not super high and with the railings being fairly open and the old wooden decking this bridge can be a bit scary for those with a fear of heights

Kids loved it. Beautiful vistas. A little scary but worth it. Love the village of Cuenca and all the kind people.

Really only way to get from the "casco historico" to the Parador without having to go down and then up again. I loved the bridge but realize it could be frightening to those afraid of heights, especially when the wind blows. Bummed to see those dumb locks with people's names on them all over the bridge. This trend has really... More

There you have a great view over Casas Colgadas. If you are not afraid from heights you should cross it - bring the camera!
