The famous windmills

If you ever come to Spain and get the chance to pass through consuegra, you have to see Don Quixote's windmills. There isn't much else in town, the windmills are very cool.

My wife was excited to see so many large old style windmills on a hill. They can be seen for quite a distance. The views from the hill are special too. Next to the windmills is the Castle of Consuegra adding to the atmosphere.

In my way to Granada, I stopped at Consuegra to imagine the character of Don Quixote and his windmills in La Mancha. It is a wonderful site, the white windmills are aligned on a hilltop overlooking the town of Consuegra. Come in the morning when the light is perfect and parking at the hilltop is plentiful.

Giant windmills that you can't get any closer to, sits on top of a hill in this little town of Consuegra is worth the visit. Great for photography opportunity if you like taking pictures.

We stopped there on the way from Toledo to Andaluzia. Consuegra is a must. The landscape is unique and the windmills are important if you like Don Quijote de La Mancha adventures. "La Mancha" is the name of this part of Spain where you can see these windmills. I strongly recommend a visit. And take the opportunity to buy some... More

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.

We went there at 8 pm. There were no tourists, just locals with kids. It's a beautiful place with great view of the city...

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.
