The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

4.1
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.

    It's actually so as expected, a nice place near the sea. Great spot for Selfie's, especially at sunset.

    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
