Itinerary

You can also choose lodging in the Old Alcázar, an Arab castle like construction with Spa facilities

Día 2From Belmonte to Alcazar de San Juan passing by old villages with plenty of windmils

Following the Don Quixote route, we have to leave Belmonte across an easy path of colored fields heading to Mota del Cuervo “to discover” the typical Don Quixote´s windmills. The next stop is El Toboso, the hometown of Don Quixote´s beloved Dulcinea. There, you can visit the Dulcinea’s museum and admire the typical architecture of La Mancha region. Next, among countless Vineyards fields and windmills you will arrive to Campo de Criptana and there, admire the Arab quarter of the Albaicin. You will finish the day at the historical town of Mota del Cuervo and sleep in an old convent of the 16th century.

Día 3Easy path through the countryside among wineyards and more windmills

After visiting Alcazar´s windmills, you will head to a lake area and from there, more old villages and windmills will be waiting for you. By easy and quiet paths you will arrive to the final destination of the day, Puerto Lapice where more windmills appear on a nearby hilltop

Día 4From Puerto Lapice to Tembleque visiting the most beautiful windmills and a 10th century Arab castle at Consuegra

The final cycling day will take you across fields of olive trees and vineyards all the way to the last town of the trip where the last windmills are. These windmills definitely are the most striking ones since they are placed on top of a hilltop and thus made believe Don Quixote they were giants he had to fight with.
