Tinos

BACK ISLAND 's MAP INFOXENIOS E-MAIL

Tinos is more of a pilgrimage than a tourist island resort. Here is the church of Panagia Evagelistria, home to an icon with reportedly curative powers, discovered in 1823. Twice each year, on March 25 and August 15, the devout make a trip to Tinos to worship the Virgin Mary. The port and capital city, Tinos, is built almost in a perfect circle and is quite picturesque, with small street cafes and restaurants. Crowning the city is the Church of Panagia Evagelistria, while non-pilgrims might find interest in the Geometric exhibits at the towns Archaeological museum. Tinos is also home to the Ursulines Catholic Convent, and is the Cycladic island with the strongest Catholic tradition.
