Cuenca is a Spanish municipality which belongs to the Autonomous Community of Castile-La Mancha, and the capital city of its province of the same name.  Although there is evidence in the outskirts of the city of human settlement since Upper Paleolithic times, it wasn’t until the Muslim Conquest of Spain when the Quinka Fort was built, that the origins of the city are recorded.

These days the local economy is centred on tourism, which has been strengthened since the Old City was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996.

Cuenca conserves an important historical and archaeological patrimony, which extends throughout the whole of the Old City, although the focus is on buildings such as the Cathedral or the Hanging Houses, which have become the symbol of the city.

The Cathedral of Cuenca: its construction started in the 12th Century on the same site of the Aljama Mosque and represents one of the earliest examples of Gothic architecture in Spain.  It is an amazing building which has features of the transition from the Romantic to the Gothic style, as well as others from the 13th and 15th Centuries.

The Hanging Houses: These are the most characteristic monuments of the city – a series of dwellings from at least the 15th Century which have been constructed on a cliff top directly above the Hoz del Huecar (a chasm of the River Huecar).

Among its most important festivals are Easter (Semana Santa) in Cuenca, which has been declared of International Tourist Interest, the Religious Music Week – a festival of the highest standards, which has also been declared of International Tourist Interest – and the San Mateo Celebrations which take place between the 18th and 21st September and which have been declared of Regional Tourist Interest.
