Convenient passage across the gorge from parador to upper town

The bridge is very safe and scenic, with nice views of the town and the gorge - well planned and very handy for visitors

This one of top 5 you have to see at Cuenca! Cross both sides to and from the Parador and visit there the museum.

When you cross the bridge, sustained in two metal high pillars reinforcing an older stones beams destroyed long time ago, the impression is amazing, as well as the views both sides, the Parador of St Paul and the Cuenca Old Village.

Incredible view and sensation when you cross it. Not recomendable for people who suffers vertigo. At the end you may enjoy of th casas colgadas and the huecar river sightseen. Must view if you are in town.

Rebuilt in the style of the era from iron, the original stone bridge collapsed a century ago. Affords magnificent views over the gorge as well as the Parador, Hanging Houses and castle area. Scary though!

Not exactly a pretty bridge but still impressive none the less. Affords great views of Cuenca. It scared my young lad a tad as it seemed quite rickety and exposed but is in reality very safe. He is afraid of heights but still managed to cross it 4 times over 2 days so it cant have been too bad.

If you are visiting Castilla La Manca make sure to make stop at Cuenca. The biggest attractions there definitely are Hanging Houses of Cuenca (Las casasa colgadas) and San Pablo Bridge. This bridge is up to 40 metres high, and supported upon the remains of the old bridge. The original bridge collapsed, and the current one was made of wood... More
