Happened to find this by chance and loved it! Great food, chulería, solomillo and all we tried! Best of services too! more »
A very nice walk for two hours or so. The rock formations are spectacular and nicely visible, the park is kept up well. While there are no hills to climb, the path is not suitable for people with mobility issues (not our case but others should be aware).
We stopped at La Ciudad Encantada on our way from Madrid to Valencia. Really beautiful place, and the road leading to it is spectacular. Spent about 2 hours there. Wish we had more time, b/c we wanted to explore every boulder. My 6 yo wanted to climb them all, and to be honest, me too (not sure if climbing is allowed 🤔). This park is 30 minutes away from Cuenca, a small town with a breathtaking cathedral and picturesque streets. We were so happy we stopped by both places.
