Cuenca by High Speed Train

  • 11 hours

Get onboard a high speed train towards Cuenca, the city famous for the Hanging Houses. Discover its most symbolic locations and take a ride on the tourist train.

Cuenca by High Speed Train

At your chosen time we'll leave Atocha Train Station in Madrid by high speed train. After a 30 minute journey, we'll arrive in Cuenca. Welcome to the city of the unique Hanging Houses!

You'll have the day free to wander through the historic centre, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. As you explore its narrow streets you'll come across important sites such as the Cathedral and the Calderón de la Barca Tunnel, if you want to discover Cuenca from underground. 

Also, you can't leave without visiting Cuenca's main highlight: the Hanging Houses. You'll be surprised by the large balconies that loom over the cliff edge, it looks like they're floating over the Huécar river!

Then at your chosen time, you'll get the high speed train back to Madrid.
