We stayed at the parador so this footbridge was our regular path to old town. However; for those staying in old town, crossing this footbridge to the parador side to view the awesome setting would seem to me to be a must do.

It was built years ago and is still safe. It does not swing in the wind. It is very secure. Walk from the Parador Hotel over to the old city. The city virtually hangs over the gorge. Great pictures.

Visit this both in the day and at night for some spectacular views and photo opportunities. Will give you a bit of an eerie feeling due to the height but well worth the views. Walk across to see the parador.

Good views of the castle area and down the gorge. A pleasant walk up from the town centre however there is not much more here. Worth visiting if you are in town.

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

Interesting walking bridge. Look in any direction, including downwards to the gorge and the views are lovely
