The windmills are very impressive, to bad they don't work

I did not know about the windmills nor their history. I really enjoyed visiting them, recommend anyone that visit Mykonos to do so.

This museum is interesting and very small - don't make plans to go there, just enter as you pass by it on the street. You see how people used to live there in the past.

We only saw these windmills from a distance but they are impressive even though they are no longer operational.

This is a must have photos for any visitor to Mykonos. This is the symbol of the island.great back ground, blue skies and something unique. Just gets very windy, hence the wind mills!

My wife and I walked thru Little Venice to find these marvelous refurbished windmills. They were definitely worth the walk.

Fully furnished authentic Mykonian house dating to the XIX century. The residence belonged to a local lady Lena Skrivanou - hence the name of the place. You will see not only objects of everyday use, but also beautiful costumes of the era.

You can get a rough idea of what Mykonos used to be like back in the days. The view is amazing and the artifacts very interesting

It is a shame that they are not being maintained, the immediate area is covered with rubbish, used condoms etc what could be a magnificent place to visit is being neglected.
