Windmills Chora Amorgos

The Troullos neighborhood of Chora is the entryway to the windmills, which circle the windswept hill. Some of the well-preserved windmills still contain the mechanisms used by the millers to process the flour.

They stand opposite the Kastro fortress, in a panoramic and imposing location, on a ridge that catches every breath of wind.

There are said to have been up to eighteen (18) windmills here in the 19th century!

Several of the windmills are easily accessible, while others require a demanding ascent not recommended on windy days. On hot, windless summer days, this location is the ideal place to watch the sunset, with the sun dropping into the sea and the silhouettes of the windmills taking on purple and orange hues.

The landscape becomes even more enchanting if you turn towards the village and admire the Chora, the Kastro, Kyra-Leousa church and the pretty village streets.
