The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Mills to the typical souvenir, in front of small venice photos, nothing fancy is often filled with tourist. Seek instead the small church hidden in mykonos

  • A must see when visiting Mykonos. They look good from both a distance and close up. Excellent photo opportunities both up close and far.  more »
  • The most beautiful attraction for photos! Unique, characteristic windmills of Mykonos town, overlooking the Little Venice!

  • must visit site. awesome views. place to look back at little venice
  • Great for sunset pictures but you'll never get the postcard shot during the high and shoulder seasons. It did make me laugh listening to people take photos and then have a conversation about how they have no idea what they were! Was better in the morning as less busy and colours from the sun make better photos anyway. Other than a landmark, noting much else to see.
  • A must site when visiting Mykonos. Beautiful to take photos at sunsets.
  • Must see when visiting Mykonos Accessible all day but during sunset is magical
  • 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.
