The "Village of Flying Houses" is the ideal tour for those looking for great road trips in Europe and who want to get to know some beautiful towns in the Spanish countryside. The tour combines 4 astonishing places, including such as Cuenca and Albarracín. These historic villages are truly wonderful to visit and, most importantly, to drive there.
The roads, sights and places in this part of Spain are undervalued, but here at “On The Road” we think it is time to introduce them to international tourism and not just local visitors, and to discover the hidden wonders that are Cuenca and Albarracin.
Cuenca is the town that
gives this tour its name, and this is because Spanish people refer informally to its “casas colgadas”,
which means literally “hanging houses”. The town is medieval and romantic. We recommend exploring the
stone streets, the antique buildings and the cathedral.
