An important town in the La Mancha area of Toledo province, and of Roman origins. Located at the foot of the Cerro Calderico ridge, it has an impressive castle with an exceptional keep, and several of the windmills typical of La Mancha. Five of it twelve windmills conserve their complete mechanism and one of them is known as “Sancho” (in honour of one of the main characters in the novel Don Quixote). Consuegra's many other treasures include: the Town Hall; Los Corredores, housing the municipal museum; Torreón Casa de la Tercia House; San Juan Church; and Santísimo Cristo de Veracruz Church, a museum of votive offerings. The fortress is from the early period of the Reconquest. Ceded in the times of Alfonso VIII to a brotherhood that founded the Great Priorate of La Mancha, it has a double row of walls and several towers. Consuegra Town Hall, in Renaissance style, is in the Plaza de España square, which has houses with wooden balconies.
