Historic Convent in Monumental Town
Jan - Dec
16TH C. CONVENT NEXT TO THE "CASAS COLGADAS" The former convent of San Pablo occupies a
privileged position in the Hoz del Huécar gorge, a compendium of sheer walls and
luxuriant vegetation on the outskirts of Cuenca, next to the 'Casas Colgadas'
(Suspended Houses). The glazed cloister, and the former chapel, now an inviting
café, complement an interior which combines traditional elements with more
contemporary details such as wicker, leather and upholstery. The comfortable,
welcoming bedrooms stand out, some of which have splendid views of the 'Casas
Colgadas', in addition to the conference rooms, the bar and a wonderful dining
room decorated with exquisite taste. Well-seasoned dishes make up the basis for
the traditional cooking of Cuenca, such as 'morteruelo' (rich game-animal paté
made with olive oil and spices ), 'pisto con lomo de orza' (tomato-based
ratatouille with marinated loin), roasts and 'alajú' (dessert made from almonds,
walnuts and honey).
