Consuegra is a municipality located in the province of Toledo, Castile-La Mancha, Spain. Most Spanish windmills, like those described in Cervantes’s Don Quixote, can be found in the province of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The best examples of restored Spanish windmills may be found in Consuegra where several mills spike the hill just outside of town, giving us a spectacular view of the 12th-century castle and of the town.

New on 500px : “La Encantada” archaeological site by ConchiGReyes by ConchiGReyes

La Motilla de La Encantada es un poblado en altura a casi 800 metros, ubicado sobre una posición estratégica sobre el valle del río Jabalón y controlando los pasos naturales hacia la Sierra de Alcaraz y los que conducían a Sierra Morena, a través del Valle de Alcudia, importantes rutas ganaderas norte-sur y este-oeste.

Es un poblado metalúrgico fortificado con varias líneas de defensa, que contiene un viejo templo funerario que data de la Edad del Bronce y fue hábitat, necrópolis y fortaleza, formada por una importante muralla con bastiones. Los sistemas artificiales de protección defensiva del poblado están constituidos por lienzos de muralla concéntricos y secantes, ocho puertas de acceso y un aljibe natural en torno a la cueva.
