Settlement from the Geometric Period

Kato Mylos, the Lower Windmill, in Messaria is at the end of Path Four (4), which starts at Kedros Beach. The Upper and Lower Windmills of Messaria used to grind migadi (a mixture of wheat and barley) to produce flour. We have a very beautiful view from the Lower Windmill, with the main point of interest to our left the well protected bay with Limenari Beach (pebbles with gorgeous light blue green water). On our right, we can also see the narrow peninsula where, in 1967, archaeologist Fotini Zafeiropoulou excavated the ruins of a settlement from the Geometric Period. Carefully descend the steep slope of the Lower Windmill (Kato Mylos) toward Limenari. From there we can very carefully climb the rocks on our left to explore the ruins of the Geometric Period settlement. Limenari used to be a pirate port.
