One of the attractions of Cuenca are the "Casas Colgadas" (Hanging Houses). A type of building that was once common (during the 15th century). You can see everyone around taking pictures of them, myself included. That night I had dinner in one of them. An excellent dinner in very good company :). That's when I finally got why some very rich and powerful people, centuries ago, would consider this as one of their residences: it's the view and feel outside and inside. It's one of those things you have to be there to figure it out.
