Photographer's Note

Most Spanish windmills, like those described in Cervantes' Don Quixote can be found in the province of La Mancha in central Spain. The best examples of restored Spanish windmills may be found in Consuegra where 11 mills spike the hill just outside of town, providing a spectacular view of the 12th century castle and of the town. The castle was once a stronghold when Consuegra was the seat and priory of the Knights of San Juan--the Spanish branch of the Knight's Hospitallers of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Windmills are also located in Mota del Cuervo, Tomelloso, and Campo de Criptana.
