The Three Windmills

«The three windmills welcome visitors to the capital of Tsakonia»

They rise as sleepless guards above the Leonidio at the “Prouzano” location, which is ideal for their operation  ..They are probably dating back from the 18th century and they are monuments of Greek architectural heritage and integral elements of the landscape.The first and the second  have been constructed in the 18th century, and the third in 1836.The 2nd and 3rd mill are depicted in murals in 1900 located in the house of Chris.Augustan, wherein the first was presented as abandoned.
