Discover Cuenca Cathedral

On the Plaza Mayor, the Cuenca Cathedral is a surprising sight with its façade and the esplanade in front of it. The building of the church began in the late 12th century and was consecrated in 1208 by Archbishop Ximénez de Rada. You can complement the visit by going to the Museum of Archaeology, which gives a summary of the history of Cuenca thanks to some archaeological remains dug up on several sites in the province.
