- "At this point they caught sight of thirty or forty windmills which were standing on the plain..." Thus begins chapter VIII of Don Quixote.
- In Cervantes' time windmills were quite common. This view is undoubtedly the characteristic landscape of Campo de Criptana, actually taken from a small windmill window like this one.
- 10 windmills are today preserved in this site. 34 were registered in the XIX century with many more for sure existing in the Middle Ages as per recent archeological studies. No wonder Don Quixote went mad with them!
- Windmill's window. As real as it looks..
