I am Giorgos, I was born and raised in Agios Georgios of Lassithi Plateau.
My first contact with the plain of Lassithi and the windmills was at a very young age as I come from a rural family. As the only boy of my family, I was taking care my father’s windmills with which he was watering his crops.
Leaving the Plateau to begin my studies as a mechanical engineer I always kept my love for my place and for these remarkable machines that improved the life of the people of Lassithi, they contributed to the development of the area and they were a great sight!
In 2011 I proceeded to publish the book "The Aeolian Park of the Gods", a title inspired by me to describe the Plateau. Here, I first introduced the concept of perforated sails, as the only way to restore the world's first and largest wind farm. Thanks to this patent, we have succeeded in restoring more than 100 windmills in the plain of plateau and was the reason for the award of my proposal, with the Europa Nostra Awards in 2015, as well as for my distinction in the Greek institution " Greece Innovates "in 2016.
In 2018 I founded Windmills.gr with the main objective of restoring the Wind Park, preserving and spreading the cultural heritage of the Lassithi Plateau!
I invite you to live together a special and unique experience, and to make a trip in time and in the magical world of the Windmills!
My name is Konstantina, I was born and raised in the Lassithi plateau, the oldest and largest wind park in the world.
I have studied Business Administration and in the last 12 years I have been involved in the industry of events and concerts. Since the beginning of 2018 I am responsible of the social media of Windmills.gr, its promotion and organization.
I invite you to the Plateau to experience the unique beauty of my country, to guide you to the magical world of the windmills and to treat you with traditional dishes at the family tavern of mother Niki!
