Travel Guide Spain

Cuenca

Our imagination inevitably flies to its famous -and impressive- Hanging Houses. Cuenca is capital of surrealism. It is also nature and an example of the slow life we need. Cuenca awaits you.

The city of Cuenca is … adipiscing elit. Nam venenatis mauris id libero porttitor, congue semper sapien dictum. Nunc efficitur tellus vitae laoreet congue. Sed vel tincidunt elit. Aliquam scelerisque faucibus facilisis. Duis eu blandit tortor.

But there is also an entire thrilling territory to explore…phasellus cursus risus eget lorem commodo, eu porta risus porta. Aliquam erat volutpat.

1. Abstract art in Cuenca: cuna del arte abstracto, se ve el ejemplo de las casas colgantes y precisamente una de ellas, la Casa del Rey, alberga el Museo de Arte Abstracto Español, gestionada desde 1980 por la prestigiosa Fundación Juan March. Su interior es espectacular!!! Luego el visitante abandona este recinto para bajar hasta el puente de San Pablo, desde donde se hace la típica instantánea. Esta pasarela de hierro centenaria une las dos orillas de la profunda garganta conduciendo al visitante hasta la siguiente parada obligatoria: el convento de San Pablo. La fórmula vuelve a repetirse con éxito. Un antiguo edificio es ‘ocupado’ por la vanguardia transformándolo en un bello engendro ecléctico y dialogante. En su iglesia se halla el Espacio Torner , un lugar diseñado para exhibir la obra de uno del pionero Gustavo Torner en pleno silencio conventual, bajo sus arcos góticos. La crisis ha provocado que, por ahora, esté cerrado con visos a abrir en un futuro no muy lejano, esperemos. También está la Fundación Antonio Saura, en eligió un palacete del Siglo XVIII, la Casa Zabala, donde hoy se recogen varias colecciones privadas y personales. Artículo de Traveler.

3. The Route of Faces: xxxxxxx

4. Lavender fields in Brihuega: see here.

5. Three cities with a lot of history:

Segóbriga: Un anfiteatro, un teatro, una basílica, el foro, termas, templos, viviendas, una necrópolis… el Parque Arqueológico de Segóbriga cuenta con todos estos monumentales espacios propios de cualquier ciudad romana que se precie.

Alarcón (Conjunto Histórico-Artístico desde hace casi un siglo) y su formidable castillo medieval donde Don Juan Manuel escribió parte de su obra literaria y que actualmente alberga un Parador donde se organizan visitas guiadas.

Belmonte, villa medieval amurallada en cuyo castillo se dice que estuvo retenida Juana la Beltraneja y donde se han rodado clásicos del cine como Los Señores del Acero, Juana la Loca o El Cid (sí, Charlton Heston también estuvo aquí).

  1. Ruta de los castillos de Cuenca: bien merece escala en los castillos de Cañada del Hoyo, de Garcimuñoz, el de Rochafrida en Beteta con su majestuosa Plaza Mayor porticada o el de Los Bobadilla, ubicado en el singular Conjunto Histórico de Moya.

7. Starlight destination: http://www.astroturismoclm.com/menu/que-es-starlight.html
