Windmills of Crete


Northern Coast

Lasithi plateau

There is a group of 24 unidirectional windmills at the edge of the plateau at Nikithiano, near Neapoli. Another group of 3 windmills in the Lasithi area In addition, on the plateau itself there are thousands of small windpumps for irrigation. (There were once around 10,000 of these pumps).

Unidentified and unclassified locations

I suspect the "windmill" villas at Kissamos were never working windmills.
