About Windmills of Mykonos
The windmills are a defining feature of the Mykonian landscape. There are many dotted around the island, but most are concentrated in the main town of Chora and all facing the North. The famous "Kato Mili" in Chora (Greek for lower mills), stand majestically in a row on a hill overlooking the sea to harness the strong Northern winds.
The windmills are symbols of an important aspect of the history of the island and many of them have been refurbished and restored to preserve their beauty. No windmills are in operation today but many serve as homes to locals and vaults to numerous Mykonian heritage documents.
