About The Windmills, Mykonos
A thing of beauty is a joy forever. And if gets clubbed with a purpose, then there is nothing like that. The windmills in Mykonos stand as an example of the same idea. Initially constructed by the Venetians in the 16th century, these north facing landmarks harnessed the winds to mill wheat – becoming a very valuable source of income for Mykonos. Mykonos became an important milling point thanks to its ample supply of both oncoming wheat and wind. More windmills kept on being built right up to the 20th century. However, if you wish to let go the purpose that they serve, these windmills will come across as the most picturesque sites of Mykonos. The white dome shaped buildings can be seen from every point in Chora and are also the most prominent sight visible to ships coming into harbour. There are a total of 16 windmills standing now, one of which has been turned into a museum.
