Overlooking Skala on the hill are three windmills. We were lucky enough to be there when the sails were being fitted and trimmed. As you can see, the closest one is being attended to by three workers, the other two have yet to be completely set up with their full complement of sails. These beautiful structures stand right of the crest of the hill, close to the Monastery at Chora.
They are stone-built with beautifully constructed timbers. It was extremely windy when we visited and the sails were trimmed to almost nothing, but still managed to fly round at a rate of knots: an impressive display of the power of the wind in harness.
