Like many others we stopped off here on our way from Granada to Toledo. The drive from Granada is about 3 hours and it is a good opportunity to stretch your legs and walk around a bit. If you are a fan of Don Quixote you will enjoy the side trip. It is only about 10 minutes off the highway... More

Day trip by bus from Toledo. I went on a national holiday, and they had one of the windmills working (actually taking in the wind, spinning the machinery, and milling wheat to make flour), which was really neat. The views from above the hill were amazing. there's little else to do here, though.

If you've read (or even if you haven't read) Don Quixote, these are probably what you envisioned. These marvelous structures sit on a hill visible from the highway, and beg you to come visit. As far as I'm concerned, they were one of the highlights of our three weeks in Spain. They are found part way between Toledo and Córdoba... More

you can actually go inside one of the windmills and see how they work, really interesting, it's shown with several different videos in the room on the top floor of the windmill. it's possible to drive your car all the way up the hill to the windmills, despite there being a sign at the bottom that discourages driving. as we...

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.
