"Medieval Spanish Town"

The medieval fortified city of Cuenca was built by the Moors, later conquered by the Castillans it evolved into a royal town in the 12th century. As a result of royal patronage, the town flourished as a socio-economic, cultural and religious center. The unique blend of secular and religious buildings that were built between the 12th and 18th centuries within the landscaped fortress town are truly impressive. The town underwent several changes from a prosperous military settlement, economic center and religious hub each stage leaving a mark on the fabric of the city. The town is divided into the tightly packed upper town and the more open lower town. Places of interest include the Cathedral of Our Lady of Grace and Saint Julian, Bridge of Saint Paul, Bishop's Palace, The Castle and the typical Hanging Houses.
