The Windmills of Ios Island

On the righthand side of the Town of Ios at a place where certainly the wind blows hard one can find the sight of the windmills of Ios island.

The Windmills of Ios Island

Impressive, even if they are not standing today in their original form, the windmills of Ios are the perfect ambassadors of connecting the past with the present.  Fully incorporated into today's Town settlement and a great place for tourists to visit during their holidays.

So pivotal where those structures in the past, harnessing the force of the Aegean winds, day after day servicing the needs of its inhabitants. The windmills are just a jump away from the Town center, on the square of Spring, or how they call it today, the Square of the Mills. You can see 3 of the original 12 windmills – two of which are in great condition – next to the road that leads into the Town.
