Here, where heaven and earth never meet, lies the vast plain of Campo de San Juan. A seemingly endless space where one can recreate the senses and have a rest from the journey, while running one's eyes over the infinite outline and nuances of this land full of history or glorying in the daily spectacle of the sunset. Nothing better to fully enjoy the delicious culinary culture of La Mancha and its rich historical past, to do it in one of the privileged spots of the area: Surrounded by the "giants", that Miguel de Cervantes immortalized in Don Quixote, and on the same stage where one of the most important passages of his masterwork takes place: The ingenious gentleman's struggle with windmills. Without doubt, taking pleasure in the excellence of our local La Mancha cuisine in this very particular setting, will be one of the most relaxing experiences for your mind and palate during your journey.
