Unique, lovely, historic thing to see in Spain. The area is dry and dusty old Spain - but that is this part of Spain. We saw many windmills in our drive in this area & not all of them were the same. Some are old stone; some are whitewashed like the ones in Consuegra. They are all interesting to see.

A piece of Spanish history. You can go up with your car and even go up a Windmill. Kids and older ones will like this one.

Driving from Cordoba to Madrid, we almost didn't take the slight detour to Consuegra. I'm so thankful we did! The windswept hill on which the windmills and castle are situated offered commanding views of the flat land in all directions. La Mancha, indeed! Though the windmills are not working, this did not affect their impact at all. I felt transported,... More

An amazing site with 12 ancient, but restored, windmills on a ridge above the town alongside the ruins of a medieval castle. Two of the mills are open for viewing and one has an excellent video showing one of the mills working, in Spanish but with French and English subtitles. Very photogenic especially at sunset.

The hilltop of Consuegra is dotted with 9 windmills and a 12th century castle. It's is a lovely place to get a close up view of the windmills and 360 vistas of the Spanish farming countryside. You can go into two of the windmills to see how they worked. The first one charges 4 euros per person, which also includes... More

The windmills of Consuegra are awesome, even though they're not actually the windmills that inspired Cervantes (since they are from the XIX century), they are very similar and the place of their location is great. You can imagine yourself fighting with the giants. If you are in Toledo is really easy to get there, there are 2 buses, at 9:15... More

A nice spot to visit when driving north to Madrid from the south. It is a nice stop to take a break and see the old castle and historic Spanish windmills near Consuegra that are all slowly being restored. A good opportunity to hike around a little to work off the wine tasting that many do in the local area.

The castle and windmills here are beautiful and so is the view! There is a small fee for everyone over 10, but everyone enjoyed the break from driving.This was fun for the whole family, but it is not the place for younger children (under 4) because there are lots of steps and there are places where you're high up and...
