Definitely worth a visit and do a walking tour. Plenty of places of interest and loads of history, always worth having a guide to get all the information.

We had the taxi take us to the top of the hill/end of the road and we walked down into town. Be sure to see the view on both sides of the way down.

The view is pretty cool and all the buildings are very harmonic. We visited Cuenca for a weekend and is more than enough to see the town.

Cuenca is a very charming city, well worth at least a couple of days. I would suggest the Posada de San Jose as a home away from home and a great restaurant.

Thats the easiest way and will take about 10 minutes to the centre of old town! You can carry on going uphill for another 10 minutes though!

The hill only goes in one direction. So if you start at the top it will all be downhill from there. We started at the footbridge near the parador and took a trail through the valley that ended at the top of the old city... More
