Photographer's Note

The town of Ormylia (Ορμύλια) is located at a 90 km distance from Thessaloniki south of Polygyros. Ormylia is the capital of the region of Ormylia and is home to about 3,500 permanent residents. The area surrounding the town is one of the most fertile areas in Halkidiki. Ormylia was built at the location of the ancient city of Sermyli. Today Ormylia is a very picturesque town. With its narrow streets and traditional architecture it has all the characteristics of the old settlements in Halkidiki.

The windmill is one of the most prominent landmarks in the area. It is found just outside the town on a small hill overlooking the town and the surrounding area. It was built in the 19th century and used to belong to the monastery Doheariou.
