Full description

Get picked up outside your hotel and head straight to heart of the Serranía de Cuenca Nature Reserve. Your first stop will be the El Ventano del Diablo viewpoint. Here, admire the panoramic views of the Cañón del Júcar and see birds such as native tawny vultures and alimoches flying overhead. Next, travel to Ciudad Encantada, a natural park in the Serranía, filled with a collection of karst rock formations that have been molded by the forces of nature. Let your imagination run wild as you try to spot faces and shapes in the naturally-formed sculptures. Enjoy a guided tour of the park and learn more about the karst formations from your knowledgable guide before heading to the Nacimiento del Río Cuervo spring. At the spring, spot an impressive variety of birds and marvel at the cascades of the waterfall.

We were picked up in a 9 seater mini-bus that was comfortable and spacious, from a predetermined location as our accommodation was inaccessible by car. We were a very nice small group and we all got along. Our leader was very knowledgeable about nature, trees, and he was passionate about the area, and had a good sense of humour. Our destination, La Ciudad de Encantada was just incredible, like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I am so pleased we were guided by Tempus Cuenca, as I spotted a large group who came by coach from one of the other Cuenca Tour Companies, as I much prefer to be part of a small group. We had an excellent day! Thank you. All the arrangements were seamless and very well communicated.

Bonita excursión por nacimiento del Rio Cuervo y Ciudad Encantada. Perfectamente organizada, cumplimiento de los horarios, el vehículo, y la comida. Todo perfecto, y lo mejor el guía, Eduardo, que con sus acertadas explicaciones, simpatía y profesionalidad, hacen una experiencia realmente grata. Muy recomendable
