Pretty City Square
Sep 2021
The city square here is smaller than most but still pretty and dominated by the 3 arched city hall and the huge cathedral.

Main square of old town Cuenca
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is the main square of the old town. The Cuenca Cathedral is here. There are many interesting, colourful and unique building on all sides of the square.

You can also find many restaurants close to the main entry gate.

Charming, a great place to watch the world go by.
Sep 2019
Busy in a charming, peaceful kind of way with a medieval arch providing a gateway at one end. Not frenetic but enough going on to keep one entertained. Sufficient bars to provide a great choice and surprisingly realistically priced bearing in mind that they are in the cutural centre of an historic city. This is probably because most of the patrons seemed to be locals rather than tourists. Tapas presented with every drink, in some establishments we were offered a choice. Good way to pass the time. Even the local police provide entertainment in their attempts at traffic control. Worth spending a few enjoyable hours soaking upthe atmosphere. Also a great place to come for breakfast at one of the bars.

Cafe Culture, Old World Atmosphere
May 2019
Do not miss the chance to walk UP the hill from new Cuenca to the plaza. You can reward yourself with lunch, dinner, or coffee, and watch the world go by. This is one of our all-time favorite spots to just relax and enjoy each other's company in a completely relaxed environment. You are steps away from history, hanging houses, beautiful museums, and amazing architecture.

Small but pretty
Aug 2019 • Couples
There's some lovely coloured houses, the cathedral, bars and the town hall and its arches.
The only issue is its busy with traffic and cars parking and unloading all the time that it makes it feel noisy and a bit chaotic..
Don't get me wrong it's not busy, busy but I think as the overall feel of everywhere else in the old town is calm..it makes this area feel it.
This is the area where you can catch the line 1 bus to the bus and or train station.
In the morning it is shaded where the cafes are so if you want to eat breakfast out early (by that I mean before 10am) suggest taking a light weight coat or wrap..as it can feel a little bit chilly.. even in summer.
Pretty in the evening with the buildings lit up.

Very pleasant, shame it can't be traffic free
Sep 2019 • Couples
The Plaza Mayor is the centre of Cuenca old town and is dominated by the cathedral at the north end and the Casa Consistorial at the south. There are a number of cafes along either side and colourful houses opposite the cathedral and it is a pleasant square. It's a shame that it is part of the only road through old Cuenca and hence it can't be traffic free which does spoil it a bit.

So colourful
Aug 2019 • Friends
The most colourful main square I’ve ever seen in Spain. Different buildings with different colours build up the central square in a perfect way.

Great ambience
May 2019 • Couples
The Plaza is a great place to sit at night sipping a glass of wine and eating tapas. It has a great ambience and atmosphere. To reach the plaza you have walk up windy cobbled streets unless you catch the bus or tourist train.

Very nice!
Jun 2019 • Family
We ventured across the footbridge from the Parador de Turismo to the walled city of Cuenca to see the hanging houses, which were amazing! Then we sat here in the plaza to have a refreshment and a snack! The cool breeze was refreshing and we enjoyed people-watching while we rested. The arch is beautiful!

Small but relaxing
Apr 2019 • Couples
Take a coffee or meals at the plaza, relaxed and slowed down after viewing the Easter performance. The plaza is not large but the Cathedral and Mayor house are just a few steps away.
