Windmills of La Mancha

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The province of La Mancha is part of the Castilla-La Mancha region of central Spain.  In this drone video by eminorcks, you'll see one of the provinces most famous sights: a line of 12 tower mills atop the mountain of Cerro Caldericoof.  The so-called Consuerga Windmills are believed to be those described in the epic novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, one of the great works of Western literature.   Published in two parts in 1605 and 1615, the novel gave birth to the phrase "tilting at windmills."
