The hanging houses or “casas colgadas” as they are known in Spain, are Cuenca’s most notorious attraction. These gravity-defying edifications hang over Río Huécar gorge. In an effort to squeeze more people into the packed city center and use every last square inch of space available, the houses were built during the 15th century and have (mostly) stood there ever since. The best views of the houses are to be found on the San Pablo Bridge, a steel beam construction, notorious for its ability for making visitors suffer vertigo.
