Cuenca is a mid-sized town between València and Madrid. The old town is dramatically perched on a hill that rises between two rivers. The old town is certainly worth seeing, but its still a bit dull. The commercial centre of modern Cuenca is in the modern part of town, below the hill. This makes the old town to feel like more like a museum and a reserve for tourists.
