Activity description
Discover one of the most beautiful routes you'll find in Cuenca, Hoces de alarcón.

Located in the south of the province, you will find a place of ideal charm to observe the real swift. The environment hides a lot of history and a rich cultural heritage. The small town located in the meanders that form the river Júcar is a symbol of the multitude of civilizations that, at some point, passed through here. You can admire its castle, very well preserved, in addition to its Gothic church of the twelfth century. Its narrow streets will transport you to another era.

The path of the hoces de alarcón is one of the most spectacular in the Serranía de Cuenca. In some of its sections, there are towers of medieval origin, such as that of the cañavate, and remains left by the Romans as the piezo bridge.

Also part of this wonderful environment, the Alarcón reservoir, of large dimensions with more than a thousand cubic hectometres of capacity, makes it one of the largest in the area.

Along the route you will enjoy a true birdwatching adventure in this conquese enclave where you can observe the history, geology and vegetation united by the river Júcar. In addition to common swifts other birds such as swallows, common airplanes and with a bit of luck, griffon vultures, booted eagles or black kites.

During the visit to the town of Alarcón, we will see how the ruins and historic buildings harbor large populations of birds. We will make a tour to identify the largest number of rupicolous birds, we will look for the elusive eagle owl and timid orioles that move in the soto with its cheerful spring song and we will surely see the zurita pigeon, the gaudy sparrow, the rocking plane, the Chough and forest birds.

If there is time left we will walk around the sickle where we will see bee-eaters and kestrels sharing territory and we will try to visit the Alarcón reservoir to add some aquatic birds to our list.

A worthy tour for birdwatching lovers.
