Unusual shapes

by DanielF

In a difficult exercise of adaptation to the terrain, the buildings of Cuenca often adopt unusual shapes. The traditional construction methods take profit of the stability of the stones in the lower floors and use a wooden structure and sun-dried bricks in the upper floors in order to ensure the endurance of the buildings with a light weight.

Fundación Antonio Pérez

by andal13

This foundation is situated at a very odd ancient building: a convent of 17th century. It seems a labyrinth, where each small room leads you to another, and several stairways; through its windows you can see a beautiful sight of the cliff. In this place, there is an amazing collection of modern art. The entrance is free.

Esta fundación está ubicada en un antiguo edificio de características particulares: un convento del siglo XVII. Parece un laberinto, en el que cada pequeña habitación conduce a otra, y posee varias escaleras; a través de sus ventanas se disfruta de la espectacular vista de los acantilados. En este lugar existe una impresionante colección de arte moderno.

Empty streets of Alarcon

by breughel

The main square and the streets were nearly empty (in the week).
Nevertheless it is possible to eat in Alarcon. There is the restaurant of the parador (but once the waiters are busy they don't care about new arrivals).
Informal but good is the restaurant Asador on the square at the entrance of the Parador. They are kind but don't expect them to speak other languages than Castillan.

bridge across the gorge and look up!

by angiebabe

take the path that runs down from the Museum of Abstract Art and cross the bridge that takes you across the gorge and you can look up to the houses that are built perched up on top of that cliff top!
you get full view of the balconied houses and up the gorge sides.
dont if you are scared of heights or visions of collapsing bridges!! but otherwise get some great shots of what you have come to see.
