The Windmills (Kato Milli), Mykonos Town
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.

The Windmills (Kato Milli) Reviews
Was pleased to come across the windmills as they feature on most of the postcards and attraction advertisements of the island. However there wasn’t anything too incredible about them. Glad we saw them... more »
Not far from Mykonos town so may as well visit Usually just for photos Not much to do in the place itself more »
Lovely and nice. Big windmill that doesnt move, great for photo shoot. The reason why its not moving? Google it. All the info are there.
This is another important landmark in Mykonos. The ambiance is amazing, they are located at the top of hill facing the sea, New Venice and also the west. So you can appreciate the sunset amd the beautiful surrounding. It is a place to have and enjoy a quality time for yourself.
