Traveling in Spain with kids – La Mancha

Previous Traveling in Spain posts:

On our way from Toledo to Cordoba we stopped over at Consuegra, in the La Mancha Province. Consuegra, like other small towns and villages in Castilla – La Mancha, claims that the famous Don Quixote fought the windmills there. You’ll have to ask Cervantes about this… but it definitely fits the bill 🙂

Don Quixote's windmill?

Don Quixote’s windmill?

The town is located less then an hour’s drive south east of Toledo, and other then the windmills on the hill there isn’t much to see. But the windmills are spectacular against the La Mancha plains and there is also a restored castle to visit.

Here are some photos we took of the windmills – definitely worth the visit if you are in the area!

The town has no other attractions, but the elders meeting in the town’s main square/park provide some good photo opportunities:
