The Phoenix Club: Our October mini break this year is to the Hanging City of Cuenca, Logrono and Avila in the north of Spain. Dates? 17th – 21st October 5 days, 4 nights.
-Cuenca is in the mountains of east-central Spain. Founded by Moors, it retains its Historic Walled Town with cobbled streets and medieval castle ruins. Perched on a  spur high above the Júcar and Huécar rivers, it’s most famous for its well-preserved “casas colgadas,” or hanging houses. Cantilevered over the Huécar gorge, they seemingly cling to the cliffs’ edges.
-Avila is sometimes called the Town of Stones and Saints, claims to have the highest number of Romanesque and gothic churches per capita in Spain. It has complete and prominent medieval town walls, built in the Romanesque style.  It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985.
-Logroño was an old settlement, first of the Romans, under the name of Vareia, a commercial port, and then of the Celt. The region was finally annexed to Castile. Logroño was the main seat of the Basque Witch Trials, part of the Spanish Inquisition.
€350pp based on 2 sharing. Includes coach fare, B&B accommodation, Day trip to Salamanca, Guides in Cuenca and Salamanca and drivers gratuity.
