Hot day but very enjoyable walking tour of cuenca town and cathedral

The walking tour of Cuenca was interesting and informative. We had an excellent guide Jose-luis who was very knowledgable and friendly. It was rather hot and some of the group found walking up hill very difficult. My family and I really enjoyed it, the lunch was good with delicious roast lamb. The walk from the mirador was a little rushed but enjoyable was well

Good tour but needed more time in Cuenca. We arrived during sunset and it was hard to see hanging houses with setting sun.
