As usual, our dear Vesna starts the day taking pictures of every moment and of all teachers and students. our guests are waiting at the meeting point full of excitement to start a great day in this unknown city for them .
Cuenca is at the North of the province, its first kwnon name was Cünka. Since the Paleolitic to these days Cuanca has been a very rich city in historical and cultural events.
Nowadays, the economy is based on turism, It became very important at the end of the 20th century, in 1996 when this city was declared Unesco World Heritage Centre.
Its architectural background around the old town is great, buildings such as the Cathedral of Cuenca and Las Casas Colgadas have become some of the symbols of the city.
We visited the The Science Museum in Cuenca although there are more than ten important of them.
We enjoyed every activity at the Museum, touching, seeing, smelling, hearing and even tasting all the five senses alive for the whole visit. We reinforced and learned many things during the visit, the monitors gave us clear lessons on the different topics.
Then in the afternoon, we started a walking tour around the city and our tour guide did great in his briefing, we smiled, and had a great learning time once again.
Main events in the city are Easter , which was just finished in April and the Religious Musical week
The Mediterraneal cliamte of Cuenca permited us to have a perfect day walking through its streets.
It was an unforgetable day, full of great memories that we took with us.
