One of Cuenca's most beautiful churches. We were there on the day of a wedding so we couldn't go inside, but we got a good view of the sanctuary.

There are (52, 55, 65... depending on whom you ask) churches in Cuenca. This is a fairly nice one, and a church that you can visit. Other than that... well, it is just another church. Nothing special, particularly if you have traveled widely and seen...More
