Tinos is the Cycladic island for those who appreciate the simplicity of life. It is located near the geographical center of the Cyclades island complex.
Tinos is famous for the authentic, picturesque villages, the hidden, beautiful beaches, the incredible light and shadows, its 80 or so windmills, about 1000 artistic dovecotes and its Venetian fortifications at the mountain, Exobourgo.
On Tinos, both Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic populations co-exist. The island is also well known for its famous sculptors and painters, such as Nicholaos Gysis, Yannoulis Chalepas and Nikiforos Lytras.
