The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

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.

  • Windmills lined up and climb the hill from Colmar. In the tourist's location, but you want to fit look at pictures as a. The famous sunset.

  • Mick's goal, from Old Port to the alley, can be quickly arrived. This is the abandoned wind mill. Look at the years of disrepair ... You can see the countless cars parked near the wind. Wasted a good place. You can see the beautiful sunset.

  • It is worth climbing the Hill to reach the pinwheels. From there, to take pictures with a view to the sea and also with the little venice. of the 45 60 minutes on the site, is enough.

  • Beautiful place by the sea.. many restaurants where u can sit and watch an amazing sunset. If u don't want to eat one can sit near the sea bank.
  • The most characteristic spot in Mykonos but yet so amazing.. Tip: watch the sunset from there.. The view is breathtaking..
  • Brisk walk out from Little Venice, up the hill and the windmills are to the right. They're quite pretty, but they are NOT a 5 star review attraction. Ignore the 5 star reviews. The first windmill can be entered of you pay a donation to the man who owns it. The other windmills are privately owned and not accessible. There's nothing to do here. It's a dead end, backing onto a dusty car park with derelict vehicles. The windmills are pretty, but looking at the views you'll also notice the high volumes of litter too. Walk up, get your photos, leave.
  • The windmills are one of the most famous landmarks of Mykonos. The island was geographically located on a major sea trade-route which once connected Venice to Asia. Because of its constant winds, Mykonos became an excellent location where refine grain, so during the 16th century the Venetians constructed many windmills. The windmills Kato Myloi are situated southwest of Mykonos Town, very close to Little Venice and next to the sea (it was necessary an easy access to the sea to transport the grain) Nowadays, only seven windmills have been preserved of more than twenty that existed on the island.
  • A very beautiful area. The windmills are iconic and unique, but the other amazing thing is the sunset from here. You can watch a sunset that will rival Santorini. So many excellent restaurants nearby also.
