Discover The Don Quixote sites

In the region of La Mancha, the fans of the book written by Miguel de Cervantčs Saavedra will have the opportunity to relive the adventures of the ingenious Hidalgo via some of the places mentioned in the book. One of the towns on this route is the magnificent Villanueva de los Infantes (Ciudad Real), which has quite a rich architectural heritage dating from the baroque and Renaissance eras of La Mancha. As the ancient administrative centre of the Order of Santiago used to be in this town, the famous writer Francisco de Quevedo lived here till he died. The façades of numerous sandstone houses display over 200 coats of arms. El Toboso, the village of Dulcinea located in Toledo, is another place described in the book written by Cervantčs. Three buildings stand out from the rest in this town: the convent of Trinitarias Recoletas, Dulcinea's House, and the façade of the Franciscan convent. Finally, go and have fun in a decor of windmills, like the ones found in the villages of Consuegra (Toledo) and Campo de Criptana (Ciudad Real).
