We would be delighted if you would make the Parador de Cuenca your choice for exploring the many unforgettable spots in this uniquely beautiful World Heritage City. The hotel is in a former monastery with an enviable location atop the Huécar Gorge, site of sheer walls and dense vegetation in the outskirts of the city, opposite the magical Hanging Houses. You will be charmed by the glass-enclosed cloister and the former chapel, now a cozy café, our swimming pool and the lovely panoramic views of the city that can be enjoyed from some of our guest rooms (superior rooms).
Cuenca is full of interesting sights. The city itself is beautiful. Sit and enjoy chocolate con churros (drinking chocolate and donut sticks) in the lovely Plaza Mayor (Main Square), surrounded by history and monuments with virtually no traffic. Visit Santa María y San Julián Cathedral, and of course, don't miss the amazing vertical Hanging Houses, overhanging the Huécar River.
Just over 30 kilometers from Cuenca you can visit one of nature’s wonderful caprices, the famous Ciudad Encantada (Enchanted City). The limestone rock formations in this natural area create the illusion of walking past streets, squares, tall buildings, wooded areas, animals, Roman bridges and even ships, all watched over by an enormous giant's head.
A stay at the Parador de Cuenca will allow you to discover a city of magical beauty that is sure not to leave you indifferent.
