The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

(3.6/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.
