Tinos Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Tinos lies in the Aegean Sea and is situated close to the islands of Andros, Delos and Mykonos. Originally named Opiussa and Hydroessa in ancient times, the island is home to the Church of Virgin Mary, or Evangelistria Church, at Hora which is one of the grandest churches in the whole of Greece. The church was built on the site where the Orthodox Image of the Virgin Mary was found, following a vision by nun Pelagia, between 1823 and 1831. Of traditional architectural style, the spacious church has many arches and is made up of two floors with many other smaller buildings in its courtyard. Another popular attraction on the island is the Monastery of the Lady of the Angels at Kechrovouni which was built after three sisters had the same vision of the Virgin Mary telling them to build a monastery at a specific location at Kechrovouni, where they saw a strange light.

Tinos is connected by boat to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina and also to the islands of Andros, Syros and Mykonos, and to almost all of the Cycladic islands.
