Came here close to sundown so the temperature was almost perfect. We were fortunate to have one of the merchants open at first arrival, so he gave us permission to visit inside of the mill. After enjoying the city view and listening to the church...More

Besides the windmills (high up on a ridge) the view of the surrounding landscape is worth the visit. Very hard to imagine Don Quixote up here though riding on Rocinante ..... don't point that bloody lance at me !!

After seeing Mota del Cuervo's windmills was a little bit sceptical before rise to the first(last) one in Consuegra. Then a paraplaner gives me the impression that all we can fly and really all molineros are sailor. Nice gastromolino with local craft beer.

It was very windy in March so I would recommend going summertime. Otherwise it was a nice piece of history. The windmills were cute and make a nice photo.

The windmills are an absolute must for every visitor to Spain, but especially those that have read Cervantes' novel, Don Quixote. Just 30 minutes or so south of Toledo (and hour and a half south of Madrid) the windmills at Consuegra were the highlight of...More

If you have studied Quixote, this is a great stop. If not, a nice place to rest. Have to find the right spot to get the picture. We went on a sunny day, so the mills were very white. Small shops. Worth the stop.

We were driving form Toledo to Granada so the Consuegra windmills were a minor diversion. Interesting windmills and a view of the surroundings.

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
