Welcome to Tinos, the island of nature, of the simplicity of life, of the gentle curve of its hills, of its enduring villages and friendly villagers, the island of miraculous icons, with its wealth of natural beauty, shadows and light, of its artistic abundance, painters, sculptors and their works, of its dovecotes and doves, monuments to history one and all!
Barely touched by tourism, Tinos is an island for those who appreciate the old ways and the island lifestyle of authentic picturesque villages, the kind that one hopes to find on a Greek island, and the simple Greek cuisine that Greece itself is famous for.
Here on Tinos, it’s back to basics.
The main town of Tinos is a thriving community and during the summer months, and on the weekends, the town is throbbing with activity, primarily due to Greek visitors here to pay homage to the Holy Virgin at the famous Church of the Panagia. The rest of the island lies undiscovered and its beaches remain ever so inviting.
Unique destination for Artists of Sculpture, Photography, Painting,
