Tinos

A island where you can refresh your body, mind and soul…


The place, the climate and the people…

  • The largest island of the Cyclades, next to Naxos and Andros.

  • The climate is cool but strong winds blow around the year. According to mythology, Tinos was the residence of Aeolos, the god of the Winds.

  • The people are hospitable, cheerful and polite.


Tradition and Architecture

  • The local houses are plain and practical, built according to the traditional Cycladean architecture, whitewashed with blue doors and windows and lovely chimneys.


Dove-cotes

  • The main characteristic of the island are its 1,000 pigeon-houses, made of stone near fertile land and mountain slopes.

  • Their lower part serves as a place to keep agricultural and stock-breeding products.


An artistic island

  • Tinos was the birthplace of the painters, Litras and Gizis, and the sculptors, Filipotis, Vitalis and Halepas.


Church of Evangelistria

  • The most important religious monument of Tinos and probably the whole Greece.

  • Built in 1823 by the Smyrniot architect Efstratiou to house the miraculous icon of the Virgin.


The Icon

  • It was found by Holy Pelagia and is the work of Luke the Evangelist.

  • On its feast day on the 15th of August the icon of the Virgin is covered with votive offerings and there are many pilgrims.
