Impressive. 12 big Molinos in the middle of La Mancha, almost allows you to transport yourself to 'El Quixote' and see them as real giants.... The whole place is very relaxing and peaceful due to its views (like in the middle of nowhere) and silence. Two of the windmills are open, I beleive the 2nd one (end of road might... More

Couldn't wait to visit this place having seen it on many tv programmes. It was very exciting driving from Andalusia towards Madrid, seeing the change in scenery from the rugged mountains to the dry, dusty plains of La Mancha. Lone windmills started appearing, and it made a change from eyespy to windmill spotting with the kids. We headed into Consuegra... More

If you are close to Consuegra, this area is definitely worth a trip! The views are lovely and the windmills bring you back 200 or so years!

Driving across Spain and decided to have a few hours in Consuegra specially to see the windmills up close, having passed at a distance several times. Consuegra is well worth an overnight stop over and we will return soon. The windmills and castle have a stunning location with excellent panoramic views across the plains to the hills. The castle is... More

I thought this little pit stop was so worth it!! We got to see the windmills that are supposedly in the stories of Don Quixote!

We came especially for the windmills and were not disappointed. You can walk right up to all of them. Their sails are anchored so they don't move. Great photo opportunities to be had.

We had driven through many areas, and seen other windmills, but these were by far the best. Beware the "do not drive" sign at the bottom of the hill - it is only for large vehicles or those with with trailers. You can drive right up to the windmills (in the slow season!), but you'll be pestered to pay for... More

I went there by drive when travelling on the way from Madrid to Granada, this place is really beautiful and windy, you can feel cold even in May.

There are several old windmills that live up to the Don Quixote fame. Only one has need renovated as a mill and store. There is a small entry fee of 1.50 Euros that includes either a bottle of water or a bonbon.
