The windmills are one of the most fascinating attractions in Mykonos. Built in the sixteenth century for about 400 years they have been a vital source of the island's economic sustenance both internally and by creating trade routes for the export of flour. With the advent of mass tourism they were promptly converted into an attraction thanks to a major renovation and now they are one of the most important photographic destinations on the island. Furthermore, one of the mills has been transformed into a museum with photos and captions in English and Greek to tell the history and commercial importance of this activity fueled by strong winds. They are located in Kato Myli, reachable both on foot from the historic center and by public transport.
