MYKONOS (CHORA MYKONOU)
The core of the Mykonian Agricultural Museum, the first open-air museum in Greece, is Boni's windmill.
The Cyclades islands are among the windiest areas in the Mediterranean, particularly Mykonos, where the calm days number no more than ten during the whole year! The mykonian windmill is a heavy three-storey cylindrical stone stracture.
The raised basement is used for gathering and weighting the weat. On the middle floor, the grain is gathered to be ground by the ancient grinding machine on the second floor. The windwheel usually consists of 12 wooden antennas with equal-in-number triangular sails.
The windmills have been the most popular of all the sights of Mykonos and are recognised worldwide as a trademark of the island!
Open from July - September
