One of the highlights of my trip to Spain. As you drive to Consuegra, you can see them from far away, drove thru the city to get to them. Lovely city, and the windmills make this place special. Breathtaking scenery. Windmills are kept in good condition. It takes about an hour to see them. You can drive all the way... More

If you have read The Man of La Mancha or seen the play this is a must see. Actually it's worth seeing regardless. The windmills are exactly how I pictured them - maybe even better. They stand on a hill overlooked the farms and fields of the La Mancha countryside. I was there is July and could see wheat fields,... More

"En un lugar de La Mancha..." The 7 windmills and the 10th century castle on the same hill are prime reasons tourists go to Spain. We drove from Madrid in the morning to tour pAranjuez Palace, had lunch then drove through Consuegra up the hill an hour before sundown. We got the panoramic view then, when the sun went down,...

I drove here from Toledo and it was very cool. I'm not sure it would be enough to see on a tour itself unless you can see some of the old villages along the way. The windmills are certainly worth seeing!

We visited two windmills. One right at the top past the castle which charged 2 Euros but this included a drink. It had been restored and we were able to see how an original windmill would have looked. The second one was included in the entrance fee to the castle and was restored and showed a clear video of the... More

The primary attraction of this quaint little community southeast of Toledo is the 12 windmills up on the hill. We arrived there by rental car. There was one other car there and we were, for all intents and purposes, alone in this serenely beautiful, but arid setting. The wind was blowing (it should be if one is going to have... More

Magical place to identify with the stories of the Quijote. Very well maintained, not too many tourist shops. Must visit

I have been intrigued by the windmills for years. The entire story of La Mancha. When we planned this trip I really wanted to include this part in our itinerary and am so glad we did. The whole town of Consuegra was friendly and it was a beautiful town to walk around in addition to seeing the windmills.
