Consuegra Castle Tours and Activities

Consuegra Castle
Located in the Toledo province, Consuegra Castle is one of Spain’s best-preserved castles. Despite being passed between Moorish and Christian rule throughout the years, little to no Moorish influence exists in the modern structure; however, you can still explore the medieval castle, enjoy views over the surrounds, and climb the windmills featured in Don Quixote.
The Basics
If exploring Consuegra Castle independently, you can save time by booking in advance; some tickets combine entry to the castle with access to two of the famed Don Quixote windmills. Guided tours are available at weekends for visitors who want to learn more about the site. If you have more time to spare, some history- and literary-focused tours combine Consuegra Castle with stops at the towns of Consuegra and Toledo.
Things to Know Before You Go

  • The medieval Consuegra Castle will charm history buffs, while the windmills will appeal to literature fans.
  • If you’re on a time budget, book a combo admission ticket to the castles and windmill in advance.
  • Those with mobility issues, wheelchairs, or strollers may struggle with steep steps and uneven surfaces.
How to Get There
Consuegra Castle can be reached on foot from the town of Consuegra or visited during a day trip from Toledo (follow the CM-42 road) or Madrid (follow the A-4 road). Arriving by public transport can be time-consuming and confusing for non-Spanish speakers, so opt for a tour which includes round-trip transfers for maximum convenience.
When to Get There
Consuegra Castle is open 10am-2pm and 3.30pm-6pm on weekdays, and from 10am-6pm on weekends and holidays. Guided tours are held at 12pm and 4pm on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays only. For the best panoramic views, head to the castle at sunset or visit in August for the Medieval Fair of Consuegra.
Things to Do in Consuegra
Consuegra may be better known for its literary windmills and medieval castle, but there are other things to do in and around town. Wander the central Plaza de España, look for Moorish-influenced buildings, or stop by the Town Hall. Visit in October for the annual Saffron Rose Festival and to see the saffron fields in full bloom.
