Restaurant of the Week: Posada de San José, in Cuenca

Cuenca (Castilla-La Mancha) is one of those places that surprise you with its extraordinary historical and artistic heritage. Especially the cathedral or the hanging houses, not to mention the Enchanted City a few kilometers from the capital.
Its historic walled city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996, so if you allow us a tip for those who still do not know it, we strongly recommend a weekend visit, you will love it.
And during that visit you can stay at
Posada de San José
a rural lodging that Jennifer and Antonio Cortinas restored and opened to the public in 1983. Original from the 17th century (it was an old monastery), it is located in the heart of the historic center of Cuenca and has a magnificent restaurant specialized in local gastronomy.
Where you go, do as you see’ is a maxim that we, as frequent travelers around the world, often use. The La Posada de San José restaurant specializes in a wide variety of typical homemade tapas and portions: morteruelo, ratatouille, gazpacho pastor, ajoarriero, Manchego cheeses…, intense dishes, typical of a powerful inland gastronomy, which combine perfectly with the wines. of Finca Antigua which, of course, you will find at the Posada de San José.
