What a surprise this city has been. One of the most scenic views of the Casas colgadas or hanging houses imaginable. The photos don't do it justice. If youre in Madrid this place is a must visit. Incredible.

It's a bit of climb to the bridge (we walked on the road to the Parador -to cross and then enter the old city). High above a gorge the iron bridge is a bit scary if you're not keen on heights. It has surprising low...More

If you are in Cuenca this is a must-see...... the bridge is super safe and the vistas from it are spectacular. Take a wide angle lens or do a panoramic shot from the bridge and impress your family and friends!

Walk up to the bridge to get a great view of the hanging houses. Also the parador hotel is by the side of the bridge ... pop in for a glass of wine and enjoy the surroundings.

It doesn't seem so high from below, but once you're on it you better don't look down. Offers a spectacular view of the river and the cliffs around. To its end lays one of the entrances to the old Town.

It is worth the walk down to this bridge for the views back over the city and the "hanging houses". You can also walk down to the river and then back up to the parking lot by the castle ruins although you would need a...More

Not the most stunning or beautiful bridge but it does give great views and photo opportunities of the old city and the hanging houses. The height as it traverses the gorge does give it a little edge particularly if it's windy, if wary of heights...More

What is all the excitement about? Just a rickety foot bridge with a view of one side of the town. Was expecting so much more. View of "hanging houses ok but they aren't much.

As previous replies - can all be accessed by car - but I would suggest avoiding peak periods in the old town.
