Tinos is located on the northern side of the Cyclades and is known all over Greece as a top pilgrim destination. Tinos is the birthplace of many famous Greek sculptors and is an island where art and faith rest in harmony. This is reflected in the marble-paved squares, archaeological sites, and the 750 churches and chapels that spread around an area of 197 square kilometers. The most famous church that stands out is the church of Panagia (Virgin) located above the capital, Chora. It is said to be the protector of the country and the source of numerous miracles. Every 15th of August, thousands of pilgrims all over Greece descend to attend the biggest annual religious fête, who keep a solemn promise to Virgin Mary. In fact, pilgrims who traveled to Delos near Mykonos, also stopped by this sacred island to purify themselves. Moreover, Tinos is known for its artfully crafted dovecotes. These wonderful constructions can be found in the villages of Tarambados, Potamia, Kardiani, and Agapi, and their main purpose was for pigeon breeding, a crucial supplement to the inhabitants’ diet for over 300 hundred years.
