When you go out of the Cathedral, on the right side, you will see San Pedro Street, which goes up to the Castle. To take the walk in the morning time is very pleasant, and one can admire the lovely and ancient buildings (civil and religious) on both sides.
Almost at the end of the street and before arriving to Plaza del Trabuco, where they try to keep the place perfectly clean, lies the San Pedro Church, which is well preserved and beautifully constructed. On a window at the entrance I could read: "San Pedro Church. 18th century". I entered, paid and contemplated.
Inside there is a feeling of peace and calm that comforts the soul. San Marcos Chapel, or of the Counts of Toreno, of the beginning of the 18th century, reveals a very curious and lovely coffered ceiling. Coming back to the entrance one finds, on the left side, a small door that gives access to the bell tower (83 steps).
Once up there, I could see some lovely views of the city and around. Be careful! At 12 pm the bells start ringing. I went down quickly, my friend was waiting for me. We went out in the street to keep on visiting the city.
On Plaza de la Hispanidad, at Aguirre Street, there is an eye-catching church: San Esteban. It is famous in Cuenca mostly because it is the beginning or the ending of some of the Holy Week's religious processions, loved by the locals.
In fact, the Holy Week of Cuenca is quite famous in Spain. For example, The Vera Cruz procession on Holy Monday, the procession of silence on Holy Wednesday and the Stations of the Cross on Holy Friday, are some of the processions during which this church has an important role.
