Review of Windmills

Windmills
Reviewed 12 July 2012

We were travelling back from Myndos to Bodrum, across the saddle of the peninsula when our guide said, "Would you like to see the famous windmills of Bodrum?" We said OK, and he stopped beside a huge and silent monolith that looked the same as windmills you see on Greek islands everywhere. There was a stone fence around this one, and a gate which was closed and locked. Clearly nothing was happening. Our guide didn't enlighted us but, trust me, the Moulon Rough this isn't. We took the attached photo, then got back in the car and drove on. Curiously, I saw windmills for sale in shops all over Bodrum (see photo attached) as if the local windmills were a big deal. But what I saw didn't justify making a big fuss of the local variety at all. As a tourist attraction, they're a fizzer.

They are very-much part of a near lost landscape and give one some idea how this area once made a living. The grinding of corn rather than tourism. Aesthetically more pleasing and more rhythmical than the nightclubs.
