The Other Side of...Mykonos

Mykonos.


Out and about (3).

 

One of the most striking features which you see when you arrive on the Island are the famous windmills. There are several dotted around the town but most spectacular are the line of six on the west coast, one of which is being renovated. There is a working windmill museum above the town on Aghios Ionnou road which is worth visiting because it is the only working windmill on the Island.

 

Thatch-roofed Mykonos windmills.

 

 

Notice the doorway facing away from the wind.

 

 

An ideal spot to catch the Meltemi to turn the sails.

 

Now that you have seen the architecture,churches and windmills it's time to wander through some other sites. There is plenty to see and enjoy, so, the next pages contain some tid-bits to whet your appetite.
