If you love Don Quixote and the Man of La Mancha, this is a place you should go see, but be prepared for a hard time finding it. As you approach Consuegra from the direction of Madrid or Toledo, you can see the windmills but...More

A beautiful location that's very picturesque. We spent an hour just taking various photos of the windmills and the surrounding landscape. Even our kids enjoyed the simple beauty without once complaining about boredom or the heat.

If you're in the area it's worth a stop to see the windmills from Don Quixote. I usually spend about an hour here when I go.

There is a very charming restaurant with lovely terrace/garden called El Cardenal which I would recommend very much for the site and the traditional Mancha cuisine. For a visit of the town or the windmills, I thought you... More
