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...

The windmills here are amazing, 11 in total placed in a long line with a castle in the middle. Spectacular views. Easy to get to from the motorway. Easy to see why at this time it is the no.1 attaction in consuegra to visit.

If you have read Don Quixote or read about El Cid, this is the rural landscape of Spain you expect. A flat, plain with arable feels, vineyards and olive groves - then running through the middle, a rocky ridge with these beautiful windmills. You can stroll about and soak up the view.

This is a great photo opportunity, and as previous reviews have said not crowded. There was some difficulty at the start because our small tour bus was not allowed up but the alternative tourist 'train' was a welcome change. Can be a bit exposed on the summit, but I would recommend going into the windmill that has a working apparatus... More

This area is rich in scenes that cry out to be photographed. We had the perfect blue sky and puffy clouds for most of our day in and around the windmills. Highly recommended that you take the diversion and visit the windmills - there is little else in the area of interest, but they - and the views form the... More

Knowing we were going to be driving from Toledo to Córdoba, we had to make plans to stop to see the windmills. They were easy to find, our GPS got us there with no problem, but you can see them from the highway. It was so much fun walking around the windmills, snapping pictures. It makes a trip through La...

The eleven windmills at Consuegra are well worth a visit. South of Toledo, they are a little off of the beaten path but the spirit of Don Quixote can be imagined there, very easily. The eleven white windmills was one of our favorite sites visited in Spain.
