Windmills in Patmos by Lorenzo Spoleti

The Windmills in Patmos are a trio of historic stone windmills standing high above the town and have been operating for the past four centuries non-stop, at least two of them. The first two were built in 1588 and the last one followed in 1863. Now the windmills of Patmos have changed their use, always maintaining their special charms and unique character. The one windmill is a museum. Organic flour is ground there, with the milling process open to the public. The second windmill turns wind power into electricity. A contemporary use that benefits the island, for sure! And the third windmill focuses on water. (Patmos, Greece)
