                                           Mykonos Island Top Attractions

    Mykonos Town (Hora or Chora)
































    In Mykonos Town, you will find five of the most famous Mykonian windmills in the area of
    Alefkandra next to the Little Venice area. The windmills of Mykonos Town are a landmark of the
    island, which would be impossible to imagine the landscape without them. The windmills were built
    by the Venetians during the 16th and continued through the early 20th Century due to the island’s
    geographic location and the strong north winds that blow throughout most of the year.  In the past
    were about 16 operational windmills to mill wheat, but today none of them are operational and have
    been renovated. The most famous windmill is Bonis and the majority of them serve as tourist
    attractions. Today one of the windmills is a museum.

    In Mykonos Town, you can find several museums: The Archaeological Museum which houses
    excavation findings that date back to 5th century BC from the necropolis in near by islet of Rhenia;
    the Folklore Museum which is housed in a Venetian Castle (Kastro), has collections of antique
    furniture, Byzantine icons, Folkloric ceramics, and a collection of model boats;  and the Aegean
    Maritime Museum with exhibits of model rowing boats, sailing vessels and steam-powered ships,
    from Prehistoric times until the present.

    One of Mykonos Town’s attractions is "Petros the Pelican". Petros is a local celebrity that takes
    casual walks around the port and loves to pose for photos. In 1954, a pelican was picked up at sea
    after he became injured and separated from the rest of his flock. The pelican, which was named
    “Petros” by the locals, settled on Mykonos Town and became the island’s mascot. Later on Jackie
    Kennedy-Onassis donated a female pelican, “Irini”, to keep Petros companionship. After Petros
    died, in 1986, the Hamburg Zoo donated another pelican, Petros II. In later years another young
    pelican, “Nikolas”, fell on the island and made Mykonos Town its home. Nowadays, there are three
    pelicans (Petros, Irini, & Nikolas) running around the port, posing for tourists.
