Tinos island is the northernmost and second biggest of the Cyclades Islands, a high quality alternative destination, with a history dating back to ancient times, outnumbered sightseeing attractions and many settlements to visit. A fairly green island for the Cyclades, Tinos offers some really nice beaches, pretty villages and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere.

The capital of the island, Hora is home to famous Greek captains and ship owners, and there is a remarkable combination of medieval, neoclassical and island style evident in its houses. Flights of stairs, a spacious square with trees, narrow streets, remarkable churches and museums, shops, cafes and restaurants play their part in the beauty of the place.
In addition to the sandy beaches, there are rocky coastlines, mountain ranges alternating with fertile plains, lush vegetation and abundantly flowing streams.Batsi is the most tourist developed place in Tinos island and it is surrounded by wonderful beaches, including Golden Beach and Agios Petros.

The coastline of Tinos is particularly rugged creating many small, picturesque bays, which mostly have good sandy beaches. Some of the largest bays on the island which are worth mentioning are Gavrio, Batsi, Hora and Korthion, all of which have organised harbours, Also is the bay of Fourni and in the north is the beach of Agios Petros, which is mentioned by Lloyds as a safe haven for boats.

Tinos is definitely worth a visit and can be seen solely as a cultural tourism destination, thanks to its museums. The globally acknowledged Museum of Modern Art, houses unique collections of paintings and sculptures. The Cyclades Olive Museum is a fine example of a small pre-industrial, animal powered, olive oil producing unit that is definitely a must-see site.
Pyrgos is the largest village on the island with its 400 residents. Home to some of the greatest Greek artists like Y.Chalepas (sculptor), N.Lytras (painter), D.Philippotes (sculptor) among others. Walking past the alleys of Pyrgos one can encounter art in every corner, house, church or square.

Pyrgos took its name from an ancient tower which was built before the 16th century in order to secure the whereabouts. The village flourished during the 18th and 19th century mainly because of the marble art and shipping.

The most important sights of the village are the two cathedrals, Agios Nikolaos and Agios Dimitrios, the Museum of Marble Crafts, the cemetery where the visitor can admire marbled works of art and stone carvings of local artists. Moreover it’s the Tinian Artists Museum, located at the entrance of the village right next to the house where Y.Chalepas lived which is also a museum these days.
