Discover Tinos

Tinos has been called “The Muse of the Aegean” and for good reason. Known for its abounding cultural heritage, it is filled with museums, galleries, art workshops and an abundance of religious and secular sights to visit. Tradition meets craftiness every step of the way, creating a unique, handcrafted landscape. Tinos is no short of natural beauty as well, boasting a very diverse landscape of sandy beaches, impressive rock quarries and mountainous terrain with the gorgeous Exombourgo Rock looming over the island’s capital.
Tinos is also a world-renowned pilgrimage destination. Known as “Grace’s Island”, Tinos is the home of the Venetian styled Church of PanayiaEvangelistria (Our Lady of Good Tidings), where thousands of local and foreign pilgrims celebrate the Assumption of the Virgin on August 15.
