The province of Cuenca is one of five provinces within the region of Castilla-La-Mancha, the other four being Guadalajara, Toledo, Albacete and Ciudad Real. The whole area has some of the most historic and beautiful lands within the whole of Spain. Remains of burial grounds dating from the Iron Age have been discovered as well as some major Roman settlements such as those at Saelices and Valeria.



Cuenca the city, known as the 'Eagles nest' because of its position, high on a hill, is easily accessed by means of the N430/N320 highways and has a good infrastructure within the city. The city is separated from the nearby rock face by deep ravines in which the rivers Júcar and Huécar run.

The city is clearly divided into two parts; the old and the modern. The modern half offers very little history, mainly consisting of modern residences, tower blocks and apartments. The old part is one of the most wonderful cities in Spain and is worthy of several days exploration. We visited Cuenca in March 2003 and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We returned in 2010 to update our travel diaries.

I spent some time in Cuenca in the late seventies and really liked the old town. Nice to see it again in this photo.
