Came across this area while driving from Toledo to Granada area. Visible along a mountain ridge many kilometers away, it just drew me in. Both the old castle and the wind mills. Of course, the Don Quixote connection had nothing to do wanting to stop. Fabulous view. Could look down on sheep and cattle operations as well as listen as the sounds of a valley school let their kids out to play. The castle is worth the 4 Euros to see. Later, during our trip I discovered that the old castle was a filming site used in a favorite movie - The Ninth Gate. Wish I'd known that when I was touring it. Turns out, its a popular sight for movies to film.

The Castle still stands after all these years.
There are parts of the Castle which they have renovated to show what it looked like.
There is also a lot of steps to climb so be careful. There are lots of information boards in English so you can understand.
When you walk to the top of the Windmills you get a great view of the Castle.
The cost is 5.50 euro to see the Castle and Windmills. You can walk from the town around 20-30 minutes up hill or you can drive up there also.

Very interesting and only E5 for the castle and one of the two viewable windmills.

The castle was largely destroyed by Napoleon’s forces in the early 1800’s you will read, so what you see is in large part reconstructed, but it is worth a visit in conjunction with the adjacent windmills if only for the views and photo opportunities offered. We spent about 15 - 20!minutes following the paths around the interior of the castle and in that time saw everything there was to see.

Washrooms are conveniently located outside the castle with some more (more basic) inside the castle itself.

The castle has been well restored but is more visually interesting from the outside. They were only doing group tours which was only spoken in Spanish, so unfortunately we could not learn much of the history. A spectacular view of the surrounding countryside.
TIP - as you start to drive up the hill, do not park in the car park on the right hand side. Instead carry on up the hill past the no buses sign and there is parking by the castle to save the long steep walk up.

This castle is mostly unrestored and we enjoyed it because of this. It actually still looks old! So many of the castles look brand new and in a way, this spoils them. There were plenty of nooks and crannies in this one and a great view from the top. Entrance fee included a look at one of the restored windmills, just down the road.

This was one of the highlights of our three week trip to Spain this summer. Ever since reading Don Quixote, I had wanted to see the windmills of La Mancha. Here they are, and they are wonderful. Very well kept up, they can be seen from the highway, but up close is so much better.

We toured the castle first. It dates to the 1100s and is a rugged and interesting visit. This is not your sanitized tourist stop. It is rough around the edges and gives a good idea of what it might have been like for the inhabitants of the time. The views of the countryside from the towers is impressive.

The windmills are beautiful. Two of the mills are open for visits, and one has a video on how the mill works with narration in three languages (Spanish, French, and English). The road up to the windmills and castle is a little confusing, but you are finally rewarded with a great experience.
Consuegra is just off the highway between Toledo and Cordoba. Take the time to visit. It is highly recommended.

I was there to chase the windmills, the castle was not my main reason for going. The windmills are a 15-20min walk, 5-10min drive. The windmills beat my expectations. I was lucky the day/night I was there a festival was in progress in town.

Impressive looking fort from the outside. Sorry to report it was closed mid-day during our weekday visit. We would have probably rated it higher if it had been open.

The onsite toilets needed cleaning.

The Castillo is next to and an integral part of a visit to the Windmills. You don't *have* to go there, but if you are in the area, why not?

It's being progressively restored, and I can imagine that when it's eventually finished it will be a wonderful attraction - not that it isn't already. The young woman at the entrance gate was friendly and helpful. (An entrance ticket can be purchased as a package as part of a visit to the first windmill just down the road - I don't recall now what it cost, but it wasn't expensive.)

The castillo sits high above Consuegra, and offers great views of both the town and surrounding countryside, as well as the windmills up the ridge. A well spend hour or so just wandering around.
