    Good accessibility

    by

    Located in front of the hospital, easily accessible and with good parking solutions (we had) this simple hostel is comfortable, with a modern look and well elaborated decorations. The services are minimum, without breakfast and with the reception working only a few hours of the day - the main door is operated by the rooms card.

    Good bathroom, air-conditioned, modern TV, comfortable beds.

    For a simple night sleep it worked fine, but if you have any extra needs this basic solution may be insufficient.

Travel Tips for Cuenca

River Júcar

by DanielF

Of the two rivers of Cuenca, the Júcar is the most important. It goes beyond the city in a serpentine-like gorge until it eventually reaches the plains of Valencia in search of the Mediterranean. Its canyon is picture perfect at any time of the year, but particularly in Autumn, when all the trees turn into golden shades.

Remember it gets chilly up high!

by mollymoo0oo0

Cuenca has a high altitude, and so for this I recommend layers and some warmer options in general. (My visit was in February, but still it´s a point worth noting in general). The helpful tourist office adviser was shocked at our suggestion of sleeping overnight in the car, and thankfully pointed us towards a cheap pensión for which we were very grateful by the time we got back later that evening. There are lovely photo opportunities all over this town - especially up in the casco viejo - old town - where you will have great views across the mountainside and surrounding landscape.

Don´t miss the night views here too.... including coloured lights shining onto the rocks... Good walking shoes if you have any intention of seeing the casco viejo and it´s sights (cathedral, parador, casas colgantes - hanging houses etc...) ....which I highly recommend!

Parador of Alarcon.

by breughel

This Parador situated in the castle of Alarcon has only 16 rooms. The most sensational are situated in the main tower of the castle.
One room per floor; a total of 6 floors. Certain rooms have no windows. The one we occupied on the 5th floor had some openings in the walls that are more than 1 meter thick.
From the hotel we had magnificent sights on the gorges of the river Jucar and on other medieval fortifications of the town of Alarcon. The place is very quiet and very comfortable according to the classification 4 stars of this Parador.
Easy parking next to the garden of the Parador.

Hanging houses

by solopes

In Portugal we use to say that "one image speaks more than 1000 words". Having that in mind, and more than 1000 pictures to post, I decided to change my behaviour, posting the pictures as soon as they are ready, and adding the comments later.
Don't get mad on me - I'm glad to share my pictures with you, and the comments will be added soon.

Episcopal palace museum - Palais Episcopal

by breughel

Next to the cathedral, in the Episcopal palace, is the diocesan museum. Beautiful statues of religious art of 13th - 15th centuries, panels of Jean de Bourgogne's altarpiece, works of El Greco, Martin Gomez el Viejo, Gérard David.
A strong room with reinforced doors contains a collection of religious silverware including the " Byzantine diptych ".
In the 1st floor beautiful set of Brussels tapestries by Frans Geubels (XVIth). It is a fact that Spain abounds in Flemish tapestries, king Philippe II possessed 700 to him alone!

=========

A côté de la cathédrale, dans le palais épiscopal, se trouve le musée diocésain.
Belles statues d'art religieux du XIII au XV siècle, panneaux d'un retable de Jean de Bourgogne, œuvres de El Greco, Martin Gomez el Viejo, Gérard David.
Une pièce forte à portes blindées contient une collection d'orfèvrerie religieuse dont le "diptyque byzantin".
A l'étage bel ensemble de tapisseries bruxelloises de Frans Geubels (XVIe). Il est vrai que l'Espagne regorge de tapisseries flamandes, le roi Philippe II en possédait 700 à lui tout seul!

Open Tuesday Saturday 11-14h /16-19h; Sunday 11-14h.
Closed on Monday
