Windmills in Crete


Gonies Windmill
(1 Vote)

Above the village Gonies we meet the beautiful windmill of Manousakis, built in 1904 for grinding grain. The restored mill, fully functional today, ceased its commercial operation in 1988, and it was impossible to overcome the technological development of the time.

The mill belongs to the rarest type of windmills in Crete. It is completely circular and turns along all wind directions and called the type of Xetrocharis.
