Town Hall in Cuenca

The Town Hall in Cuenca is one of the most important and beautiful buildings in the city. It is located on the Plaza de España, in the heart of the historic center of the city. It is an impressive building from the 18th century, built in the Baroque style. It has three floors and two wings, which surround a courtyard. On the facade there are the coats of arms of the city, the province and the kingdom of Castile. Above the main entrance there is an inscription “Muy Noble y Muy Leal Ciudad de Cuenca” (Very Noble and Very Loyal City of Cuenca).

The Town Hall is the seat of the municipal authorities and the place where important ceremonies and events take place. Inside you can admire richly decorated rooms, such as the Plenary Hall, the Session Hall, the Golden Hall and the Mirror Hall. You can also see a clock from 1900, which is one of the oldest in Spain. It is open to visitors from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 14:00. Admission is free.

The Town Hall in Cuenca is also an excellent starting point for exploring other attractions of the city, such as the cathedral, the hanging houses, the museum of abstract art or the bridge of St. Paul. From the town hall you can admire the beautiful views of the old part of the city and the river Huécar.
