Historic landscape in the centre of Spain, geographically known as Castilla-La Mancha (Castillo-La Mancha) and formerly as New Castile (Castilla la Nueva). At just under 80,000 square kilometers, the region is the third largest in Spain after Castile-León (Old Castile) to the north and southern Andalusia. La Mancha and the western region of Extremadura belong to the huge plateau landscape Meseta. La Mancha became famous mainly through the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) and his famous novel "Don Quixote de la Mancha". In the weiutflächigen plain with the numerous typical windmills there are extreme climatic conditions with frosty winters up to under 20 °Celsius minus and hot very dry summers with frequently over 40 °Celsius. The Moorish name "Manxa" (parched land) describes this very aptly; in Spanish it means "the spot".
