5 reviews of Cerro del Socorro Lookout

Juan Manuel Moreno

Upper Part of the Gorges of the Huécar


It was getting late and I did not want to leave Cuenca without having a complete view of what the city is in its totality: both the old part with monuments and the modern part. In order to achieve this, there is nothing better than taking the car and going to the Cerro Socorro in the upper part of the Huécar gorges. We went out of the city along the Huecar River and passed by the Parador Nacional de Turismo and the convent of San Pablo. We stopped there for a little while to watch this wonderful and well-preserved building and then followed the way along the river.

Before arriving to kilometer 5, at about 50 meters, we turned right and started going up a small road that, although paved, is very narrow, so one has to be careful when crossing with another car.

Excellent Viewpoint

The Cerro Socorro is an excellent viewpoint of the city of Cuenca. It was built in the fifties, using donkeys to carry materials on their backs. In the upperpart of the hill, there is a monument of Jesus' Sacred Heart. From many places in Cuenca, one can see the lovely hill and the sculpture of the Christ at the top.
