Tinos

If you're looking for mass tourism and crowded beaches, then this destination is not for you. Tinos is an island for those who appreciate the old ways and lifestyle of the islanders, the authentic picturesque villages that one hopes to find on a Greek island and the simple Greek cuisine that Greece itself is famous for. On Tinos, it's back to basics. When you first arrive to Tinos Town however, you will certainly be thinking that the previous paragraph applies to a totally different island that the hustle and bustle of the town does not apply to the rest of the island! The rest of the island though, lies undiscovered and its beaches remain ever so inviting.

Tinos is a place of worship for the Orthodox. Every year, thousands of pilgrims from all over the country visit the island and the church of the Virgin Mary, hoping that she will do miracles for them. On the island however there are also has many Catholics.
Pilgrimage is of course not the only reason for visiting Tinos. It is a beautiful island, with many little villages well worth visiting.
