About Mykonos Windmills

Mykonos Windmills are an iconic feature of the landscape of the Greek Island of Mykonos. Once used to refine and compact grain for transportation to Europe and Asia, many of the windmills are located close to the sea and Old Port of Mykonos Town. Impressing visitors with their gleaming white appearance, the Windmills of Mykonos can be found on picture postcards and many photographs of the island.

There’s a total of 16 windmills on Mykonos. The most photographed and visited are on a hill to the south-west of “Chora”, in Mykonos Town. On this hill, there are seven. Most were constructed by the Venetians between the 16th and 20th centuries for milling wheat and grains. The windmills face in a northerly direction, as this was to harness stronger winds to quicken the milling process. The Mykonos Windmills were designed with a rounded shape, pointed roofs and small windows. Other islands of the Cyclades have similar structures as their local landmarks. One of the windmills is home to a charming museum. A tour explains the milling process detailing a fascinating history of the trading routes. Although the mills remain unused, they are one of the most popular landmarks on the island, and a fascinating tourist attraction. Sit on the hillside and watch the sunset or take a 5-minute walk to Mykonos Town where Little Venice awaits, with its myriad waterfront bars and Greek tavernas.

Reaching Mykonos Windmills from Mykonos Town centre is easy. Walk to the south-west of the town by the water’s edge, and the windmills can be seen throughout the stroll. Buses operate from the airport and other towns on the island to Terminal B, with Fabrica Bus Station on the south side of the town. The windmills are a short walk from here. Taxis are available from the harbour and Old Port of Mykonos Town on a fixed fare schedule.

The Mykonos Windmills which stand proudly on the hilltop of Mykonos Town, have remained since the 16th century. Due to its geographic location, Mykonos was a strategic point on the major trade route between Europe and Asia. The climate and ample winds on the island made it the prime area for milling grains and wheat. The windmills easy access to the harbour was key to the success of each shipment. The last Windmill of Geronymos operated until the 1960s, most of its equipment is preserved for visitors to see.
