Sometimes the Windmill closes early due to National Holidays. The best place to check for any updates before your visit is their Facebook page.
When is the Best time of year to visit?
Anytime of year is great to stop by Traditional Windmill Of Antimachia.
However, when you are touring the inside of the Windmill it is really narrow so there is only room for one group at a time. You may want to plan your visit at a quieter time so you aren’t waiting in the sun for long. One of the best times to visit is May or September because you have less people there but you still have the warm Mediterranean temperatures.
If you are planning to visit here during the summer when it is usually busy, you can beat the ques by planning your visit at off-peak times. These are usually before Mid-day or Late Afternoon. These times are also great for your visit because the temperatures will be slightly cooler than at Mid-day.
