“If you are in Toledo in car, don't miss”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Only 50 km south of Toledo are the windmills that are so iconic of La Mancha. It was a beautiful site to see and so glad we made the trip. Nice little video explaining how they operate and there was a man portraying the miller in the Sancho mill. Lovely step back in time.

“The best windmills ever!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Our tour group only stopped for a short time at the windmills at Consuegra but I was so glad it did. It wouldn't have been right to have gone on a tour of Spain without sighting the windmills up close.

“Worth the drive”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

It's out of the way to go see these, but very interesting to see how things were done ages ago. Very scenic, too.

“A twist in time.”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

These windmills are a unique piece of history for Spain. Definitely a beautiful example of the windmills that could have inspired Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra to write Don Quixote.

They are positioned beautifully in various positions over the hill and make for a wonderful hike from windmill to windmill, along a ruined wall and an old fort to visit as well. Definitely a stop well worth it.

The only issue I had with the stopover was that there are currently cranes doing repair work on the fort. While I appreciate that they are working to repair the fort, it does make it a challenge to get good photos. Either way you should definitely visit this site if you have a chance.

“no tilting, just great views”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

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.
