No padecer vértigo era el requisito imprescindible si un habitante de la Cuenca medieval quería construir una casa en las empinadas faldas de la plataforma rocosa. Hoy solo se conservan tres de las llamadas 'casas colgadas', cuyos balcones destacan entre la escarpada pendiente. Los edificios que actualmente albergan el Museo de Arte Abstracto Español aún mantienen estructuras originales.
