Cuenca Travel Information  Unique for its hanging houses built on cliffs over the river gorge, this region is easily accessible from Madrid and makes for an unforgettable tour of authentic Spanish history. Cuenca is situated on a steep and rocky spur whose slopes descend into the deep gorges of two rivers winding through the central plateau of the Iberian Peninsula. The city's castle, built on the remains of an Arab fortress, was home to the Spanish Inquisition during the late Middle Ages. Art enthusiasts can admire many paintings by El Greco, as well as religious masterpieces like the Byzantine Triptych among the three museums of the Bishops Palace.Additional Spain travel information including vacation packages and escorted tours.
