KATO MILI

Mykonos

The island of Mykonos in the South Aegean Sea is dotted by these beautiful windmills locally referred to as “Kato Mili”. These windmills were built by the Venetians around the 16th century to mill flour and now serve as home to locals. My cruise around the Mediterranean stopped at Chora, Mykonos where these windmills are located.  As soon as we docked I immediately jumped off the ship and found myself walking through a labyrinth of white stone houses towards the opposite end of the island. I took dozens of photos around town as well as of these windmills and this photo happens to be one of my favorite. I wish I was able to stay longer but cruises usually dock for 10-12 hours before heading off to the next destination. Hopefully, time will give me another chance to visit and when that happens I’d definitely stay for a few days to enjoy this beautiful island.
