The Parador de Cuenca is a destination in itself. It’s located in a 16th century convent originally built for the Dominican order and it’s one of the most representative monuments of the city today. It’s located in one of the most special places in the city, next to the San Pablo bridge and opposite the Casas Colgadas or Hanging Houses.
The convent of San Pablo has a beautiful glazed cloister with semi-circular arches and a central courtyard where you can enjoy a drink on summer evenings. Other spectacular places in the Parador are the cafeteria, located in what was once the convent's chapel, and the swimming pool which provides a spectacular view of the city.
Cuenca, a city declared a World Heritage Site, is noteworthy for its architecture, its culture and its landscapes. The Old Town has retained its medieval appearance. The best way to get to know it is to walk through its steep, narrow streets and take the opportunity to visit its walls, cathedral, convents, noble houses and the Plaza Mayor.
Cuenca's important artistic heritage blends with the spectacular natural landscapes that surround it. The Parador is located in the bend of the river Huécar and is the perfect place for a trail along the riverbank leading to the most characteristic corners of the city.

About 25 kilometres away is the Enchanted City: a natural landscape of rock formations dating back 90 million years where we can recognise the shapes of dog, a tortoise or the face of a man. The Enchanted City is in the heart of the Serranía de Cuenca, which also offers special spots such as the source of the river Cuervo or the so-called Ventana del Diablo or Devil's Window.
