Cuenca, Spain

Beyond the major cities we know and love, Spain is strewn with smaller settlements that are blissfully unaware of the modern world. Onetime Roman capitals, Arab strongholds and the last resting place of saints, these formidable cities affirm the splendor of human enterprise, and walking their streets will leave you inspired and humbled. The area is also blessed with some of the best food and wine on the planet. Eating is one of the biggest joys of Spanish life, and, happily for visitors, it’s a joy they love to share—nowhere is this more on show than at these cities’ frequent and flamboyant fiestas. All the cities in this guide have been protected by UNESCO as World Heritage sites, an honor reserved for the most bewitching spots on earth. As you start to explore them yourself, you’ll soon see why.
