Hanging houses by night

And by day

View of Cuenca

In the mountains nearby Cuenca is the Ciudad Encantada, the enchanted city. Thanks to natural erosion, the rocks here resemble elephants, crocodiles, moon-landscapes and so on.

If you come here in November, there's a slight chance of snow. Some of the rocks look great in white."

Cuenca is a small city, built on a rock. The space on the rock was smaller than the required space, so many houses are partly hanging over the cliff. One of those hanging houses is a hotel, so who dares?

The tornado

The fighting elephant and crocodile

You can walk here for hours without ever getting bored. But despite its name, the enchanted city offers no houses and only one (expensive) hotel.
