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!

Cuenca is a must see town in the central Spanish area. Specially this bridge, a very high one. Recommended to cross it and enjoy a refreshment in the parador de turismo in the other side. If you stay the night do some of the walks around the town and the river. You will discover a different place, like you're in... More

Although it cannot be compared to Ronda's bridge, yet it is a very good piece of construction linking the old town and the hill where the parador sits. The views are mind blogging, making it the best spot for pictures. It is a must see

Not for the faint of heart. The best way to go to/from town to the Parador Nacional. Great views of the Casas Colgadas and the rest of town. Definitely worth the visit.

Great views from the bridge, including Casas Colgadas, Parador, River and Landscape. It can be dangerous if you suffer from spells, dizziness, etc. Bridge is open and side rails are not so high.

Had just a wonderful time exploring around and over this beautiful area! Great short walk below the bridge..then beautiful views of hanging houses, the gorge and Parador. Not for the timid but perfectly safe.
