Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / South Aegean / Cyclades / Mykonos / Mykonos Town / The Windmills (Kato Milli)
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.

Be ready for extreme winds at the appropriate location of the windmills. I consider the winds there a personal diva fan for that "wind blown" look. The view from the windmills is a lovely overlook to Little Venice. Try to go early to avoid all the crowds in your photos.
Wondering how nice it should be if it was less crowded?... For the rest try the whole of the island for at least 3 days. Lovely an calm time on fall.
