Asfendami windmills - 1.0 out of 5 based on 1 vote

During the battle of Lassithi in 1867, the 10 windmills that stood near Potami village and were mainly used for milling, were destroyed by the Turks. The windmill park was then moved to Katakalou and Asfendami areas, and later moved to the big mill park of Ambelos.

Today in Asfendamos you’ll still see the remains of those transitional mills, which probably were of the type of Axetrocharis, that had stable face toward the northwest direction.
