Consuegra windmills In the region of La Mancha, on the top of the hill Calderico, you can find one of the most impressive images of Spain, twelve windmills surround a huge fortress making an astonished icon in your mind. History, culture and fiction...more

You get to this beautiful route when you drive from Toledo to Consuegra. Well worth the detour. If you're a Quijote fans - this route is a must! The windmills in Consuegra - next to the castle - are very well preserved.
The place for a leisurely wander and to watch the sunset over Spain’s “land sea” of La Mancha. Take a moment and just enjoy the much needed cooling breeze and silence, particularly at the end of a scorchingly hot August day. A small cafe at...More
Very interesting to see so many wind mills together although not all are working. The children will love this. The Gastromolino restaurante was closed on Wednesday in August. I believe they open only for dinners in summer. So we went down to Plaza Mayor for...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.

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

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 could try the service of evaneos who offer tours "à la carte" with guides and drivers. I used it is Latin America and was very pleased by this solution offering transport and expert advises.
