Windmills at Kinderdijk | Netherlands

The windmills at Kinderdijk are a group of 19 monumental windmills in Netherlands. Built between 1738 and 1740, to keep water out of the country.

In Netherlands the construction of hydraulic works for the drainage of land for agriculture and settlement began in the Middle Ages and have continued uninterruptedly to the present day.
