Consuegra Windmills in Toledo (Spain)

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The twelve white windmills you will see in this drone video by Maite_Fornalino sit atop a ridge in the La Mancha province of central Spain.  Called the Consuegra Windmills in reference to the nearby town, it's believed that they served as the inspiration for one of the great works of Western literature - Don Quixote, written by Miguel de Servantes in the early 17th century.  In the novel, the hero attacks the windmills, believing them to be giants; this fictional scene gave rise to the expression "tilting at windmills".
