Cuenca is a very charming city, well worth at least a couple of days. I would suggest the Posada de San Jose as a home away from home and a great restaurant.

Stunning village clinging to cliffs. Be sure to wake up early and take walk that starts at the upper end of old town and walks into the canyon where the views are lovely.

Cuenca is certainly very dramatic in its cliff dwelling location with the hanging houses, amazing cathedral and walking bridge. The museums and churches are open only until about 1:00 in the afternoon and then again at 4:30 or 5:00 so you have a lot of...More

Thats the easiest way and will take about 10 minutes to the centre of old town! You can carry on going uphill for another 10 minutes though!
