Tinos is the third biggest island of the Cyclades complex of the Aegean Sea. You 'll find tiny, big, lonely or organized beaches and pure seas. You 'll find as well the cycladic art bursting from every corner, every alley and every blue-windowed white house. Choosing Tinos as a destination will fill you in with images and experiences far away from the usual.
Legend has it that in the old old times, Tinos was named "Ofiousa", in greek meaning the one that has snakes. Untill a king sent his lovesick daughter there, and ever since the island was named after the princess, Tinos. Aeolos, the god of the wind, furious Aeolos, the god of the wind, furious after his children's death, locked himself up on her highest mountain, Tsiknias, and ever since.. well.. it's windy!
So, if you are not very fond of the wind a good idea would be to consult the weather forecast.
The most astonishing thing regarding Tinos, is her variety. A typical island of the Cyclades during the summer, the colours are mostly the ones of the wheat and the dry rocks, maching great with the traditional blue-windowed white houses.
During the winter it gets full green and by spring Tinos dresses in colourful wild flowers of all kinds.
History doesn't miss a single chance to promote herself here and there, in the prehestoric sites of Bryokastro and Smovolo, in the ruins of the ancient greek temple of poseidon, the god of sea and his wife Amfetriti, at Kionia. Then at the litterary awesome rock hill of Exomburgo, where the whole city was once locked up on, searching protection from the corsairs. and ofcourse the monasteries and the temple of Mary.
Her villages, some tiny, emerging through the pure nature, others made of old stone, one made of full marble, home of the most famous marble sculpturers of all times, Pyrgo. One enchanting fishermen village, Panormos. Then Volax, a graphic village built in the middle of innumerable huge rocks, said to be ruins of a meteor. The abandoned beautiful village of Monastiria.
Tinos's beauties, so many we could for hours be talking about her secret paths, her rare sources, her kinds and kinds of beaches. The pigeon houses, the sculpted by the wind rocks and trees, the view, the uncompetable night sky, the foods, the people, the arts, the crafts, the civilization, the fresh air. The hollyness.
But look at us here, flattering our own place. well, in any case, if your path ever brings you by, don't miss the chance to give the chance to tinos to speak for herself.
