The windmills are made of natural clay, straw and wood. Each consists of 8 rotating chambers, in each chamber 6 vertical blades (walls with slots). After the cameras begin to rotate under the influence of wind force, this leads to a rotation of the main axis of the windmill. The vibrations created by this rotation gradually move the grains to the crushers and are crushed into flour. The mills were erected in 1501 – 1722
