It's out of the way to go see these, but very interesting to see how things were done ages ago. Very scenic, too.
I wasn't sure what I was expecting from these windmills after driving through the small farming town of Consuegra to access them, but great views were certainly a bonus. The old mills are very picturesque atop their hill, and the view across the Spanish plain with the mountains ringing the horizon was superb. A very nice half-day trip from Toledo.
This nice small town is actually not a part of Toledo. If you are a fan of Don Quijote you must go here; it's about 30mins drive from Toledo. You can reach the windmills for some pics and a breathtaking view of La Mancha.
We made it to Consuegra just at the evening with few hours of last daylight on the trip from Toledo. The view is amazing and a great spot to take nice pictures with Don Quixote scenery theme. With all the view and line of the wind mills you get quite magic moment. We didn't make it inside of the castle,... More

At the risk of disagreeing with most of my fellow reviewers. I would suggest if you are especially coming to Consuegra that you will be disappointed - other than the crumbling castle and the windmills it really is a barren area. We drove the slower back route from Cordoba on our way to Toledo to get there.The windmills are nice... More
The windmills and the castle are outstanding. Views from the rocky positions of the windmills across the plains are superb. The town below is drab and lifeless, and not worth a visit.
Easy to get to (regular buses) - not much to do in town other than have a nice drink/coffee and wonder the streets, but the windmills are fantastic and the view across the landscape is well worth it.
We lost our car in Consuegra Even had to ask the police to help us find it but after a few hours of despair in intense July heat,we found it ourselves at the end of Calle De San Anton near the Toledo main road. Thanks to all who helped us that fateful day. It was actually a photo of Los... More
