Discover The Don Quixote route Spain

Soren Rasmussen At the heart of the plain of Castilla-La Mancha, the Don Quixote route follows the old ways and paths of the famous hero. The journey begins in Alcalá de Henares, where Cervantès' childhood home still stands. In Mota del Cuervo, which is a typical little village, you will see the first windmills. Then come the villages of Criptana; El Toboso, with the house of Dulcinea now transformed into a museum; Argamasilla de Alba, home to the strange prison where Cervantès created his character; and Almagro. Along the way you will see the lagoons of Ruidera: a succession of waterfalls and lakes that extends over 12 mi.
