  • Very nice to go through the small museum if you have already climbed to go see the houses.
  • . Well, you can't not give it 5 stars, can you? :-) The emblematic sight of Cuenca, the Hanging Houses. Best view perhaps from the Puente de San Pablo - the ironwork bridge, but also from down below if you do one of the walks alongside the river. Inside is a somewhat eclectic collection of art, and of course you get the good feeling of being on the inside of one of the wonders of the world! Well, one of the wonders of Cuenca, anyway! .
  • There is very nice view point for full view of Cuenca.
  • Interesting Museum in a very characteristic with fine views. Too bad that so little is open on Sundays from 11 am to 14.30 and most importantly the staff hurry to close Windows and sound installations at 14.15 preventing to conclude the visit. Usually if a Museum is open until 14.30 visitors can see works and installations in full until closing time.

  • A good collection. To me what I liked most were the works of Zobel. The space is very nice. Free entrance. Closes a few hours at noon.
