Day Trip to Cuenca and Ciudad Encantada

At 9:15 am our coach will set off from Plaza del Conde de Casal in Madrid and head to the province of Cuenca, which was once an important Roman settlement. 

Enjoy the colourful landscape during the one-hour journey until you get to Tarancón for a brief stop. Next, stop at the Ciudad Encantada of Cuenca, where you will follow an English-speaking guide through this Natural Site of National Interest full of peculiar rocks and singular shapes. You’ll get the impression that you’ve wandered onto another planet! This park has also been a movie set for several films including Conan the Barbarian, starred by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

You’ll hike up to the “Mirador del Ventano Diablo”, a spectacular overlook. You’ll then have an hour of free time to get some lunch, before continuing at 4 pm with a guided tour of Cuenca, where you’ll gaze at the famous “hanging houses” from the Puente de San Pablo, a colossal engineering marvel crossing the Huécar River.

On the other side of the bridge is the Old Town. Your guide will lead you to the Cuenca Cathedral, where you’ll appreciate its Gothic façade. You’ll stroll through Calle Alfonso VIII flanked by colourful buildings. After the tour, you’ll have time to explore the city at your own leisure and enjoy the terraces and buy a few souvenirs near Plaza Mayor.

At 6:45 pm you’ll drive back to Madrid and arrive at approximately 8:30 pm.
