We stopped here simply to visit the fantastic windmills and castle situated on a hill above the town. Having parked in the town centre by the coach station we walked through the town and I must say that it is a rather dusty looking and unremarkable place. The square is clearly the most attractive part but, other than coming to view the iconic windmills, there is nothing to recommend.

Even the walk here from the parking is a stroll through history. Photo op with statue on Quijote and Sancho. Some restaurants with typical Spanish tapas and dishes.

I might be biased on this one, because I spent my childhood in this square. But you have to visit. As you approach the square walking from the river, you will walk along the Archway's street (Calle del Arco), seeing the clock tower and the archway with which the square receives you.

Then you will arrive to a square, which center holds the Cross of St. John, drawn in the ground, and if you come in the summer, the kids will most probably be playing football with a can in that spot. To your left, you have the old San Gumersindo school (my father studied in there), and also the city hall. Right across the square you'll see the corridors ("Los corredores"), built in the 17th Century with a typical manchego balcony. In there you will also find the local museum.

My recommendation is: stop in here for some minutes, sit in the old stone benches that surround the square, or maybe grab a drink in the bar "La Antigua", to the right corner of the square. Sit down and think that this place was founded by the Iberian tribes even before the romans came (6th Century b. C.), and this square was initially the center of the Roman Forum (they also built a dam in the outskirts of the city, that is well conserved and can be visited with the help of locals -by car-). And after that, you can keep walking in direction to the hill that lays to the north of the city, where you'll find the Castle and the Windmills. Enjoy the incredible history of a city that was Iberian, Roman, Arab and Catholic, and whose stories one can trace back from the actual buildings.

We went into town after viewing the windmills and castle. It was still early in the day about 1pm so not much to see on a Saturday. It was a pretty open area but not much worth viewing or stopping to see at the time we were there. I am sure later in the day or on a week day maybe more active.

Several cafe bars with seats and umbrellas outside, ideal for people watching. It seemed a popular play area for children of all ages as there was no through traffic so a safe environment. Some interesting buildings but not worth a special trip.
