Otra foto de los molinos de viento del Campo de Criptana, bien conocidos por ser la inspiración de Cervantes en la obra de Don Quijote dónde aparecen en el Capítulo VIII de la primera parte de la obra.
En este capítulo, se explica que por el camino Don Quijote y Sancho se encuentran con unos molinos de viento y Don Quijote creyéndose que son gigantes se dispone a atacarlos con su lanza. Sancho le dice que no son mas que molinos, pero Don Quijote se empeña en atacarlos ya que él piensa que son gigantes malvados, como consecuencia Don Quijote tropieza con su lanza y se cae al suele acabando así el problema de los molinos, o gigantes como seguía afirmando Don Quijote.
