Nice few hours to visit whilst in Säärema. Can go inside some of the windmills and experience it. Ticket is fair for family of 4 - two adults and 2 children.

We didn't go inside. The place is perhaps located in the middle of nowhere!

Not very welcoming, not only we were unable to order any food but for the inconvenience they also tried to charge money for visit even though we were only interested in food and nothing else. Not recommended

Definitely a big part of history, but it'll take about 15-30 min to look at the windmills and there's not much else to do. There are some wooden car-sculptures for children tho.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
