2019: Visiting Cuenca

A view from the bridge.

Yesterday, I visited the city of Cuenca, which contains some older and modern areas. The modern part lies at the bottom while the the antique part lies on a elevated mountain range.

Just a selfie of me, enjoying the view.

When you look up, you’ll see six-stories houses hanging on the cliffs above. They are quite the view! And they were constructed in the 16th century.

Also, the city was also founded by a community of Arabs and later by Christian communities.

Goodness! All the roads were steep and cobbled. I have to work out more! 😛 But, it was still fun.

Moreover, we explored the Cuenca Cathedral. General Admission is five euros and it comes with a free audio device in any language.

The cathedral was so heavenly inside. A stain glass window painted in layer gold allowed the sun to shine through. Totally magnificent! Video and photos could not capture it.

No photo could capture the ray of sunshine,

Next, we took a bus tour through the park and some of the rocks/buildings over the years have formed into animal/food images, like mushrooms.

Some of the landscapes reminded me of the videogame Dragon Age.

Plus, our tour guide there there was super cute and he was from Milano, Italia. He was the same guy from our tour in Morocco and he he gave my friend and I a hug.

With my friend Kelly, our tour guide Alberto, and, of course, me. 😉

From there, we headed home and hoped to go on another Smart Insiders tour again!
