The windmills in Provolos, Crete

Read this in Swedish: Väderkvarnarna i Provolos, Kreta

One day on Crete, when we were driving towards the beautiful town Agios Nikolaos, we made a stop at these old windmills
from the 1800s in Provolos. As far as I know they are private owned, probably by the owners of a house there nearby.

It's so nice there between the elegant built windmills at the sloping mountain, with stonepaved paths... In one of the windmills there is a small shop selling handcrafted things, but it was closed when we were there. These kind of windmills, which were used to mill flour, you also find several up on the Lassithi plateau.
