The old Alcázar Quarter

We have to climb a short flight of steps to the Quarter of the old Alcázar. Arabs, Jews and Christians lived here,.. but what remains of the past? We speak about the history of the old buildings of this quarter. Some were palaces, … what happened with them? We observe the Torre de Mangana, but what´s was its original function before it was a clock tower?

The Street of Alfonso VIII

From the old Alcázar we walk down to the Street Alfonso VIII. Why are the Houses painted with these red, oranges and yellow colors? And why has the Blue House an entry at the second floor?

The Quarter of the Hanging Houses - End of the Tour

Couple Traveller

A really worthwhile and interesting part of our trip to this beautiful little city. Jurgen vividly evoked the rich history of the alta cuidad: the contribution of its most notable citizens, and the more humble lives of its urban poor, to demonstrate how this helped create the buildings of this very special place. His knowledge and humour shone through – and he structured the tour so that the two hours were full of different architectural elements and city views but at a pace that felt very manageable in this place of lots of up and downs.

He was also very accommodating, with excellent communication; a problem I had created with our initial booking was quickly and efficiently resolved, and he was happy to answer our less historical questions about where we might replace a lost phone charger in the lower part of the city. Thank you Jurgen, you are an enthusiastic historian, a great guide and a really nice person. I would highly recommend one of your tours to enhance an itinerary for a trip to Cuenca. Which is also a Spanish treasure not to be missed.
