La Leyenda de La Mancha (The Legend of La Mancha) is an album by the Spanish folk metal band Mägo de Oz released in 1998. It is a concept album, specifically a modern-day retelling of the Spanish classic Don Quixote. This album is perhaps the band's most famous one. The song "Molinos de viento" is one of Mägo de Oz's biggest hits and is often the concluding song in concerts.
