Steep climb down with many steps to get view. Can go onto bridge over gorge for good photos. All lit at night.

Incredible sight. We'd been before but are friends had not so driving north from Madrid we decided to detour just to see them. Everyone was impressed. Absolutely beautiful and literally hanging over an incredibly steep gorge. Scary too.

Best viewed from across the gorge or the bridge, the Casas Colgadas are impressive - and together with several of the balconies and other structures elsewhere in the town, seem to defy gravity. The houses now host a modern art museum.

These houses hang over the edge of a deep gorge and look like they could drop down any minute. I certainly would not like to live in one of them. However I am sure that they are perfectly safety live in. If you cross over...More
