Mykonos mix 4

Harmony hotel Mykonos

One of the most famous Mykonos symbols are the windmills! Their importance and popularity are linked to the 16th century, when the island played an important role in the production of wheat and bread. Easy access to the port, the geographical location of the island, and the presence of winds throughout the year, have increased the financial value of windmills in the period between the 17th and 19th century. After the First World War, due to the technological development, they lost that worth, yet gain a new value as a colossal monuments of Mykonos.
Kato Myloi is the most famous group of windmills. It is located on a small hill southwest of Chora overlooking the sea. Out of the former ten, only seven windmills exist today, but each equally attracts the attention of tourists... 

Jedan od najpoznatijih simbola Mikonosa jesu vetrenjace! Njihov znacaj i popularnost se vezuje za 16-ti vek, kada je ostrvo imalo vaznu ulogu u proizvodnji psenice i hleba. Lak pristup luci, geografski polozaj ostrva, kao i prisustvo vetrova tokom citave godine, samo su povecale finansijsku vrednost vetrenjaca u periodu izmedju 17-og i 19-og veka. Nakon Prvog svetskog rata, usled razvoja tehnologije, one gube taj znacaj, ali sticu novu vrednost kao monumentalni spomenici Mikonosa.
Kato Myloi jeste najpoznatija grupa vetrenjaca. Nalazi se na malom brdu jugozapadno od Hore i gleda na more. Od nekadasnjih deset danas je sacuvano sedam vetrenjaca, ali svaka podjednako privlaci paznju turista...
