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

Beautiful! Bridge which gives you a good view over the city, the hanging houses and the former monistry. Also a good place to start a hike in the surroundings of Cuenca

Stunning site in Spain. Romantic, Quiet, Peaceful, beautiful, the Bridge is safe taken from the French tradition of placing a lock on the bridge to memorialize your visit, there were numerous Locks of love on bridge: bring one with your message/ initials on the lock and place in a special place on the bridge. 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!

The bridge has one of the best photo spots of the hills of Cuenca. The "colgadas" houses can be seen in full from the bridge.

As many have said, the views from the bridge are breath-taking. If you have a problem with heights, you may not make it all the way across. I started, but then it got really windy and the vibrations were a bit too much for me. Telling myself about the stability and soundness of the structure didn't help. I tried again... More

This is the best place to walk out to see the hanging houses that make Cuenca a World Heritage Site. The locks along the bridge are also an interesting story of the commitment of lovers. Cuenca is a wonderful day trip from Madrid and would also advise to take the short side trip to La Encantada and see the rock... More

This bridge has incredible views of the surrounding area. Walk over from the parador to the old city and take a memorable photo along the way. A visit to Cuenca is worth the time while touring Spain.

Great view of the gorge between the town and the parador. The night views, looking back at the town are breathtaking.
