Photographer's Note

Welcome to La Mancha!

What we see here are the windmills and the castle of this quaint town, called Consuegra, which is located in the Castilian province of Toledo. "La Mancha" is a geographical region in the South-Central Iberian plateau. Its name comes from the Arabian "Al-Manxa" which literaly means "The Dry".

It is obviously a very dry region (200-400 mm/year), but produces one of the most appreciated wine grapes of the world. Due to the dry weather that the region presents, the quality of the wine grapes is more than excellent. By the way, this year has been extraordinary dry in Spain, so be ready to taste the wines of the year 2005 (La Mancha wines, of course), they're gonna be the best in many years.
Enjoy it!
