Known from the ancient times as ‘Idrousa’ perhaps because of its numerous water springs or as ‘Ofiousa’ due to the plethora of snakes, and bathed by the Apollonian light of the isle Dilos directly opposite, Tinos is the third largest island of Cyclades after Andros and Naxos and the birthplace of some of the most famous Greek painters and sculpturors!

The island’s landscape is so contradictory combining both the wild nature with an aristocratic architecture. Thus you will find giant round rocks and hundreds of stone-made terraces on one hand, these exquisite geophysical monuments in the museum of nature and on the other hand dozens of white pigeon halls, these unique architectural masterpieces. This diversity of the island’s geology excites the imagination of every restless traveller and is recommended for both land and sea exploration
