AEGEAN ISLANDS

First glance

Tinos is known all over Greece, as well as abroad, thanks to the rich pilgrimage of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. However, this island, with its extensive and rich history in the art of marble sculpture, possesses many unique features: its villages, real masterpieces of architecture, the ...otherworldly landscape of Volax with the round granite formations, the suggestive rocky hill of Xombourgo with the ruins of the castle, 600 artfully crafted dovecotes, 750 churches and chapels, an excellent network of old paths that cross the whole island, and magnificent beaches. Typical of Tinos is the fact that its villages, with their marble-paved squares, springs, and well-kept houses with their yards full of flowers, are inhabited almost all year long and in most of them you can find coffee shops and restaurants. The paved roads of the island are also enjoyable, especially the one from Tinos town to Kardiani, Ysternia, and afterwards to Pyrgos and Panormos, offering a unique view to the coasts of the island and the open sea from above.
