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

Cuenca Cathedral is unique. In the world. In Spain. Literally. Not in vain, it is the only Norman cathedral in Spain, as well as being the first Gothic cathedral in the country to begin to be built and to be consecrated. In this exciting tour of the Cathedral of Cuenca, we will discover the history of the temple, its enigmas and secrets best kept and preserved and various anecdotes. And we will soak up the mysticism of the Gothic cathedrals :-) If you want to discover the wonders of the main Cuenca temple, don't wait any longer and venture inside it, on an incredible journey.

The maximum capacity that we will carry will be 9 people and the guide. Note: the entrance to the cathedral is priced at € 5 per person. The guide pays the entrance to each person, the walkers paying the amount they want at the end of the tour. The climb to the Triforium is completely optional. If someone wants to go up, they have to pay € 1.50 per person at the box office, it is not included in the general entrance fee paid by the guide.
