The city of Tinos

From on high the church of The Virgin Mary prevails from a dominant position inviting every faithful believer in Her holy land. Around Her dozens of orthodox and catholic churches emerge along with white-washed alleys, pebble mosaics, neoclassical houses with blossomed parterres, picturesque squares with marble fountains, a pedestrian street stuffed with local handicrafts and souvenirs of Tinos’ civilization, the museum of Tinos’ artists, the Art Gallery and the temple of Poseidon and Amphitrite a few metres away…

Ideal for a night walk, the city of Tinos continues its long lasting history with new reconstruction projects, e.g. the port’s expansion, the reformation of the dock’s façade, the renovation of old neoclassical houses, etc.
