Hi! My name is Cristian and I am from Cuenca, Spain. 3 years ago I started working as a guide in my land and some time later, together with a friend, I was the co-founder of a tourism company. I obtained the title of official tourist guide almost 2 years ago and, since then, my purpose is to disseminate the history, the legends, and the coolest and most interesting things of Cuenca to anyone who wants to know it. Today, I am The Juggler of History, so I tell the history of Cuenca in a rigorous, entertaining, and professional way. I'm delighted to be your guide in Cuenca and that together we not only get to know it but together we discover it: its history, its culture, its heritage, it's past and it's present. Let yourself be guided by the minstrel of history. We sure had a great time!

About the tour

Discover Cuenca in a different way, through its legends. Let yourself be enveloped by the mysteries of this medieval city. Our meeting point will be the Anteplaza, next to the information and tourism office. From there our steps will be directed towards the Plaza de la Merced, where it is said that a nun would appear at night ... to continue in the Plaza de Mangana, telling the most famous legend of witches in Cuenca. Later, we will go to the Plaza de Ronda to learn about the legend of the famous Hanging Houses and from there we will go to the Plaza Mayor, to try to unravel the mystery that connects Nostradamus with the Cathedral of Cuenca, going up the Julian Romero round to the St. Peter's Church. We will descend through the river Júcar gorge to finish at the Virgen de las Angustias hermitage with the most famous of Cuenca's legends. Important note: the tour can be done with a pushchair, but it is much better and more comfortable to carry a backpack with the little ones, since there will be stairs in some sections. It is a perfectly complementary tour to the "Daytime Wonder" and "Night Spell" tours, since although it passes through many of its sections, the content changes completely. Besides, other corners will be known that are not seen in the other tours.
