Location[edit]

Quero is located 107 km east of Toledo. Historically it is documented that in 1162, during the Reconquista, its lands belonged to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. In 1241 the lands were handed over to the Comendador of Consuegra.[2]

Quero lies close to a relatively large pond known as Laguna Grande.[3] The town is located in the comarca of Mancha Alta de Toledo, named after the historical and natural region of La Mancha.
