Tinos Island

Tinos is one of the most beautiful islands in the Cyclades. Tinos lies between Syros, Andros and Mykonos and is 86 nautical miles from Piraeus and 62 from Rafina. Tinos is a mountainous island with an area of 195 sq. km., a coastline of 106 km and a population of 8,000.

According to mythology, Tinos was the home of Aeolus, god of the winds. The Ionians came in Tinos Island around 1000 BC. In the 6th century BC Tinos was ruled by Eretria, while in 490 BC Tinos Island was seized by the Persians, regaining its freedom after the battle of Marathon.

In 1207, Tinos was conquered by the Venetians. Venetian rule in Tinos Island lasted longer than on any other island of the Cyclades. In 1715, Tinos was taken by the Turks, to be liberated by the Greeks in the War of Independence of 1821. In 1822 the famous icon of the Blessed Virgin was discovered, after a nun in the Kechrovouni convent saw it in a dream. She is honoured on the island today as St Pelagia of Tinos.

Tinos is actually known as the “Holy Island” or the “Island of the Holy Mother”, because of the existence of the Holy Church of Panagia.

The marvellous landscapes of the Tinos Island, the excellent Tinos beaches and its unique architecture make Tinos an ideal place for unforgettable moments.
