Castile–La Mancha (Inglis /kæˈstl lə ˈmɑːnə/; Spainyie: Castilla-La Mancha [kasˈtiʎa la ˈmantʃa] ( listen)) is an autonomous commonty o Spain. Castile–La Mancha is bordered bi Castile an León, Madrid, Aragon, Valencie, Murcie, Andalusie, an Extremadura. It is ane o the maist spairsely populatit o Spain's autonomous commonties. Its caipital ceety is Toledo, an its maist muckle ceety is Albacete.

Castile–La Mancha wis umwhile groupit wi the province o Madrid intae New Castile (Castilla la Nueva), but wi the advent o the modren Spainyie seestem o autonomous regions (Estado de las autonomías), it wis separatit due tae great demographic disparity atween the caipital an the remainin New-Castilian provinces. An aw, destinct frae the umwhile New Castile, Castile–La Mancha addit the province o Albacete, which haed been pairt o Murcie; addin Albacete placit aw o La Mancha athin this single region.

It is maistly in this region whare the story o the famous Spainyie novel Don Quixote bi Miguel de Cervantes is situatit - due tae which La Mancha is internaitionally well-kent. Although La Mancha is a windswept, battered plateau, it remains a seembol o the Spainyie cultur wi its vineyards, sunflouers, mushrooms, oliveyards, windmills, Manchego cheese, an Don Quixote.
