Just off from the main harbor in Mykonos, lining the shore of the crystal blue Aegean Sea, are a group of iconic windmills that have stood silent in their beauty since the 16th century. The windmills have become a part of the local fabric and residents and visitors alike use them to mark where they are on the island. You can visit the windmills by day or by night, as they are within easy walking distance from Chora’s waterfront. To me, they remind me of Holland, but it’s amazing how they’ve withstood the test of time, weather and more, to remain as reminders of a life long ago.
