Itinerary

Discover La Mancha, homeland of Don Quixote, Belmonte, Mota Del Cuervo and the village of El Toboso, where according to recent research Miguel de Cervantes was inspired by some of its neighbors to write the most famous novel of all times, “The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha”. You will visit the Castle of Belmonte (completely restored) and will know more about the life of a medieval knight and the heroes of the stories that made Don Quixote go mad.

La Mancha is a land of great wines. You will make a stop along the way to visit the winery Mont Reaga in Monreal Del Llano. After a guided tour, you will enjoy a tasting of their best wines.

You will have lunch at a typical inn –“mesón”- at Mota del Cuervo. After lunchtime you will visit its famous windmills, who witnessed the battle of Don Quixote against the Giants of his imagination. If there is wind enough, you will see how the flour was traditionally made –“molienda”- from the wheat.

The tour will end at El Toboso, the village of Dulcinea, Don Quixote’s love interest. El Toboso houses the Cervantes Museum, which keeps hundreds of Don Quixote translated editions in almost all the languages in the World, together with a lot of copies of the great book signed by many international personalities from different countries and eras.

The House-Museum of Dulcinea Del Toboso faithfully replicates the home of a knight in times of Cervantes, as it would have been the house of Don Alonso Quijano “El Quixote”.

From El Toboso you will return to Madrid, saying good-bye to an extraordinary journey in La Mancha, the land of Don Quixote.
