Photographer's Note

Due to its low altitudes, Porto Santo is exposed to the wind from all sides.

To profit from this feature, wooden-sail with rotational foundations, as you can observe, windmills were built on the island.

The first windmill dated 1794, was Porto Santo’s most emblematic work of the 18th century.

Windmills were used to grind cereals to make bread.

Some of them are still active.
