Rocky Cuenca of Spain

The most picturesque and photogenic city I have ever seen is Cuenca  in Castile–La Mancha in central Spain. Located on the rocky hill which intersect  JĂşcar and HuĂ©car rivers, it is dating back from the Roman times as an important strategic location, although inhabited. Soon, in 8th century the Muslim Arabs captured the area and realized the value of […]
