In the Castile–La Mancha region of central Spain, the Júcar river has carved a deep gorge as it flows through the Iberian Peninsula. Along its length, there are many small towns and cities. Of particular note is the medieval city of Cuenca that’s located where another river, the Huécar, merges with the Júcar.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cuenca is an outstanding example of a medieval city, built on the steep sides of a mountain, with slopes descending into the deep gorges of the two rivers. Many houses called casas colgadas ("hanging houses") are built right up to the cliff edge, making Cuenca one of the most striking towns in Spain.
