Upon our arrival, and although the name tricks us, don't expect to see tall buildings or ancient monuments because this place is here to show you the wonders of the Cuenquense nature. The Júcar River, as it passes between Uña and Villalba de la Sierra forms a gigantic and impressive canyon. It is here, at almost 1,500m. of altitude, where nature has allowed one of those whims that always fill the traveler with astonishment: The Enchanted City.
The Enchanted City is a natural place that was declared in 1929 as a Site of National Interest. It is now included within the limits of the Serranía de Cuenca Natural Park (PNSC), in the priority protection zones for its exceptional geomorphological value, of international relevance.
The amazement has caused numerous cinematographic artists to have found their inspiration in this impressive cinema landscape, adorned by the silence of the mountain. In this film landscape has passed artists of the stature such as Sophia Loren, Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Oliver Stone, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Here the karst modeling has generated capricious forms in the rock that surprise the visitor. These worldwide known geological phenomena are rock formations sculpted by the water, wind, and ice. An underwater landscape that hid the Jurassic Sea of Thetis, a predecessor of the Mediterranean. Their paths encourage you to walk through curious stone shapes that recall human figures, objects, animals, with an accuracy difficult to understand until you get a delusional city, a city that seems asleep by a mysterious spell.
