Lens Artists Photo Challenge #64: Countryside and/or Small Towns

When I studied abroad in Spain in 2006, we had the opportunity to do a lot of traveling around the country, both with our university group and on our own.  We saw not only the main cities of Spain, but also the beautiful countryside.

We took a quick day trip to Segovia, a beautiful city with a rich history.  From the castle, we saw this amazing view of the city and the surrounding countryside.

Our group took a trip through the south of the country later in the fall.  We traveled through the region of Castilla-La Mancha and saw some of the old windmills made famous by Don Quixote.

You can find more countryside and small towns at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

      Thanks! The cool thing was, there were “modern” windmills on the next hill over!

    It’s beautiful! And I can’t believe those are the windmills featured in Don Quixote! I still need to read that book.

      Me too, actually! I’ve only read an edited version in school… Not sure if I can handle the original unless it’s in translation lol

      Yes, the central part of the country is a lot of rolling plains, perfect for windmills (both traditional and modern!) Some people claim that these are the ones Don Quixote jousted😁
