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.

On our way back from Toledo to Alicante we decided to stop in Consuegra to visit some of the typical Don Quijote windmills (about 60 km from Toledo). Well worth a stop. Most of the windmills have been very well restored. Several can be visited (cost 1,5 euro per person with a drink serving included). Well worth going up one... More

If you're searching for the Don Quijote windmills' best view, then Consuegra is your must-go destination. We didn't visit the village itself, but the hill overlooking it is surmounted by several windmills and an ancient fortress; some of the windmills are in bad conditions and only a few of them have all the four vanes, but from a long distance...

This place is the nearest to time travel you will ever get and feel you are inside Cervantes' literary masterpiece, Don Quijote de La Mancha. You can visit the Molinos (windmills) as well as Consuegra Castle for a small fee, and relish on the astounding, 360 degree views of La Mancha. Definitely worth the visit. We arrived by car, fairly... More
