Many make the pilgrimage to Tinos to express their devotion and witness first hand the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary. You can truly feel the power when you first set foot on its hallowed soil, knowing that this is
the beginning of something incredible; for Tinos can offer miracles of other kinds as well.
Raw beauty assails the senses, rocks are chiseled into extraordinary shapes by the elements, beaches boast almost inconceivably blue waters, lovely Cycladic villages straddle hillsides and cling to craggy ledges. It all awaits your discovery and sometimes demands your participation, with scuba diving and windsurfing to the fore and a plethora of beachside fun and activity for all the family.
Naturally, the landscape is adorned with churches and chapels of all descriptions, not to mention a staggering 600 dovecotes, which bring an extra charm of their own and speak volumes of the special harmony between man and nature that resides here. Once you get to know the island, you too will become a believer.
