Cuenca / Fernando Madariaga – ICEX

The summer may be drawing to a close, but there’s still time to make plans for a holiday excursion.

Though Spanish beaches are famed all over the world and attract countless national and international visitors every year, they are by no means the only tourist attraction in this country.

Cities exuding culture, monuments, architecture and incredible cuisine await around every corner, many of which are only a stone’s throw away from the Spanish capital of Madrid.

Cuenca is one such place. Named a World Heritage City in 1996, this stunning city in Castile-La Mancha is not only home to the famed hanging houses, but also an enviable collection of abstract and modern art and a historic Parador hotel.
