While visiting a bridge seems like a strange thing to do, you really should not miss it. Four reasons: 1) it is free 2) You are already there 3) the views get even better from out in the middle of the pedestrian only bridge. 4) you get a chance to think about how advanced the engineering was (or wasn't) when...

I'd wanted to see the Hanging houses of Cuenca for years and they didn't disappoint. It's worth walking the road under this bridge first to look up at the houses (it's only 10 min walk round trip). It's the kind of bridge that sends my fear of heights into overdrive but it was worth it albeit I seemed to be... More

Even the kids loved the expirience to walk through the tower. More than words. A very nice place to visit in Cuenca.

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

Stunning site in Spain.

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!
