Located in the Cyclades islands, Tinos boasts charming tavernas, sandy beaches and marble villages. Tinos is one of the rare places in Greece where the villages have alleyways made from marble.

The village of Pyrgos is the center of marble art in Tinos. It’s worth visiting the Marble Art Museum here if you have time.

This is also the most important Orthodox centre of worship in Greece. Pilgrims visit the Church of Panagia Megalochari on March 25 and August 15.
