The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town

Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • As the whole island, a flop! Specific onsite, careless, cars parked all around, "jungle", scattered trash, fallen electrical wires, electrical boxes with broken doors, their own mills in need of restoration. Not worth the "Fame".
