Μyli (referred also as: Myloi, Mili or even Muloi. In Greek: Μύλοι) is a part of the local community of Chromonastiri of the Rethymno Municipality in the Rethymno (regional unit) of the region of Crete established by Kallikratis reform. Capital of the new municipality is Rethymno.
When discussing Myli we refer both to a village built in the early 1970s (“new Myli”) and to the desserted two small villages with the same name (or referred as “ano Myli” and “Kato Myli”), remains of which can be found within the Gorge of Myli.
geography and history
Taking the road south of Chromonastiri you will arrive at the village of Myli after 1.5 km. In order to visit the (old desserted village of ) Myli you have to walk down the path, which leads to the gorge, where the village is situated. Its name is derived from the many water mills, which were once in operation. A visit to this village is also worthwhile for its abundant vegetation and picturesque location. There are references that the area of Myli was occupied from the Ottoman period onwards (but there are many buildings, remains of the Venetian period).
