Travels in Spain, Tilting at Windmills

Windmill Lo Pagan Spain

I stand here in my place,
With my foot on the rock below,
And whichever way it may blow,
I meet it face to face,
As a brave man meets his foe. 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I came across this windmill in the coastal town of Lo Pagan in the region of Murcia on the east coast of Spain.

  1. I live near this place and visit the windmill often. A great poem to go with it.

  2. I came across a much more ruined version on my recent travels. Thanks for reminding me. 🙂 🙂


  3. How will it work though if it has no sails?


  4. It looks like something out of a fairy tale!


  5. Reminds me of the Greek Islands, Andrew. And my mother-in-law. 🙂 Helen had quite a collection of Don Quixote(s). –Curt


  6. I always feel there is something peaceful in windmills, I like them 😀
