Windmills or as they are also called in Greece - stone giants - have become a visiting card of the Cycladic archipelago.
How to see the windmills on Mykonos
The beauty of windmills in Greece was appreciated by many travelers capturing them on numerous photographs and postcards that can be bought all over the world. And this has a simple explanation - these traditional round tower mills with sail wings, usually paved with stone and straw top look entertaining and interesting.

They were put in amazing places where the northern winds with all their strength would always rotate their wings - on high hills, in ravines, at the exit to the canyons or on the edge of the cape. Therefore, do not fall in love with these funny, located in charming places building is simply unrealistic.

How to do?

1. On Mykonos only 7 mills out of 20 are left, they are located in the Castro and Chora districts.
2. You can easily find snow-white round mill facilities facing the open sea, stubbornly resisting the strong impulses of the Cycladic winds.
3. From here an incredibly beautiful view of the sea opens, so you can meet the sunset here and of course make a lot of wonderful photos and selfies.
