Take a tour of Walled Town of Cuenca in Spain – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. The ancient
walled city of Cuenca is perched upon the rocks above two deep gorges. This excellent defensive position was recognized by the invading Moors, who built the city after 714. The city traded hands between the Spanish Christians and the Moors several times until 1177.
Now the city is famous for awesome structures such as the Hanging Houses of Cuenca.
