Travel Tips for Cuenca

White mantle

by andal13

I live in a country where it never snows... I visit Cuenca in winter, on a sunny day, after the first snowfall... The sensations of walking down the narrow streets of cobblestones, among those ancient walls full of history, stepping on the snow, are indescribable...

Vivo en un país donde nunca nieva... Visité Cuenca en invierno, en un día soleado, después de la primera nevada... Las sensaciones de caminar por esas callejuelas empredadas, entre antiguas murallas cargadas de historia, pisando la nieve, son indescriptibles...

Good Friday procession: Las Turbas

by Aitana

The Good Friday Procession, The Way to Calvary, starts at 5.30 am. It is called the Mob’s procession (Las Turbas) because the mob vilifies the image of the Redeemer howling and playing out of tune trumpets and drums.

The following sonnet, written by my grandfather’s brother, is dedicated it to the figure of Jesus Nazarene, sculpted in cypress wood by Marco Pérez for a float that takes part in the Holy Week processions (picture 1).

A un Jesús Nazareno de Cuenca obra de Marco Pérez, en madera de ciprés, by Guillermo Osorio.

Angostura silente del gemido.
Contenido clamor hecho figura.
Majestad y dolor, dolor y altura
del dolor más hiriente y más herido.

¿Qué lamento, ciprés, o qué latido,
qué destino, qué canto, qué locura,
qué milagro volvió tu sombra oscura
en la sombra de Dios estremecido?

Nazareno, más dios que Dios clavado,
más clavado en Amor que tu agonía,
no le dejes a Dios que se te muera;

no te mueras, ciprés, por el costado
del Señor, que la cruz está más fría
cuanto más canta Dios la primavera.

Ventano del Diablo

by Aitana

The name means Devil’s window. It is a natural viewpoint on the Júcar gorge, with the shape of a natural arcade, that affords a superb view of the river. From Cuenca, take road CM-2105, pass Villalba de la Sierra and a few km afterwards you will see the viewpoint.

The Plaza Mayor

by DanielF

The Main square in Cuenca is officially known as Square Pious XII. Like any in other city in Europe, this central square is the place to see and be seen, the place that groups some of the most interesting buildings in the city. In the case of Cuenca, both the cathedral and the town hall (pictured here) are side to side with historical buildings.

The Town hall is a Barroque construction of the XVIII century that closes one of the sides of the square. In order to allow the transit of vehicles and persons, the building is sustained on a triple arch, which gives to the building the appearance of a classical triumphal arch.

The available space within the old walled city was very limited, so that this square had to adapt to the rugged terrain on top of the cliffs. This resulted in its funny, longish and steep appearance.

Plaza Mayor

by barbskie

The Town Square is the main point of reference for every visit and tour of the city. The square is actually a triangle whose corners are marked by The Cathedral, The Convent of Las Petras (18th century) and The Town Hall.
