The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

4.1
#2 of 105 in Things to do in Mykonos
Landmark Tourist Spot
The Windmills (Kato Milli) are the first thing approaching ships see on arrival to Mykonos. Many of the windmills were constructed by the Venetians in the 16th century. From the time they were built until the mid-20th century, these structures fueled the local economy by grinding wheat. Although the mills' grinding days are over, they remain much loved by the locals. Just below this spot you'll find cafes and restaurants that serve local fare where you can admire a view of the windmills and the sea. Although you cannot enter the windmills, you can approach them for photographs. Plan your visit to The Windmills (Kato Milli) and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Mykonos Town trip builder.

  • Sad to see the postcard of the city leased or falling apart, on an island that receives billions of tourism.

  • A must see spot in Mykonos. Great for a photo op. It was very windy the day we saw the windmills. There is a parking lot right behind them. It is also a short walk into/out of fambrika town from here.  more »

  • In love with my island!! These windmills are nice for an afternoon walk to take photos and then move along to the center of the town! During sunset hour gets busy
  • An ingenious way of using nature to grind wheat is now a signature of Mykonos. Well preserved and some still lived in. Was the sight of the ending of The Bourne Identity.
  • You cant visit Mykonos and not take a pic at the famous mills. A stunning view and awesome photo opportunities.
  • Very dusty, get here early for a good photo, otherwise the place is rammed with cars and mopeds
  • Oy this is just beautiful. Great photo opportunities here.
