  • The bridge itself scares a little, especially to those who have a little bit of vertigo. It would raise the Rails a bit. The amazing views, that Yes, remember if you go by the Parador el.lado there to climb a bit.

  • The bridge is around 100 yo built with iron bars on top of the original stone structure. 38m high and 105 m long. There was a fresh breeze in the middle of the walk and the view is just amazing.
  • Nice view from here. You have to be in the middle of the bridge to see it in 360 degree view of this place.
  • Great place! Don't be afraid of the height! It is better to take a picture of the hanging houses from the bottom.
  • Amazing views. Crossing the bridge was accelerating, god for an adrenaline rush!!! Simply spectacular
  • A must-see when visiting Cuenca. The views of the cliff-top houses is amazing.
