Tinos

Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Tidings

Tinos is considered to be the capital of religious tourism in Greece. Panagia of Tinos, also known as the Megalochari of Tinos (Great Grace) or Evangelistria of Tinos (Our Lady of Good Tidings), is the official patron saint of Greece.

The discovery of her holy icon coincided with the very first days of the establishment of the Modern Greek state. According to legend, the Virgin Mary appeared to a humble nun called Pelagia and revealed to her where the miraculous icon was buried.

Based on its style, the icon is regarded as being older than the Byzantine period, dating back to the early Christian age. It is widely believed by the faithful that the Megalochari of Tinos Icon is the work of the Apostle and Evangelist Luke.

Throughout the centuries, numerous reports of miracles attributed to the holy icon have rendered it the most venerated religious icon in Greece, and the Church of Panagia Evangelistria, dedicated to the icon, is globally known as a sacred place of spiritual pilgrimage and worship.

The 15th of August is the day devoted to the celebration of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.

Thousands of pilgrims from all over Greece and from abroad visit the Church of Evangelistria in Tinos to participate in the Feast of the Assumption celebrated in Byzantine splendor.

The sirens of the Aegean

Getting to know the amazing island of Tinos is an experience, 
with the beautiful beaches and the 40 traditional villages, or, according to the philosopher Kastoriadis, 
the “hand-made Tínos”.
Tinos is the homeland of renowned great artists of marble carving such as Gyzis, Lytras, Chalepas, Filippotis and Sochos, 
who have been the last famous names to have held the baton of the island’s 
marble-carving tradition. 
According to the legend, the famous sculptor of the ancient times, Fidias, 
had taught the secrets of his art to the locals. 
Their admirable craft is displayed in chapels, fountains, arches and pigeon lofts. 
In the village of Pýrgos the Marble Art Museum is worth a visit 
as much as the Gallery of Tinian Artists right next to the church of Virgin Mary.

Tinos is a very interesting place to visit. One can enjoy its unspoiled architecture, its picturesque villages, its beautiful beaches and its traditional culture and way of living that has been going on through the years.

The pan-hellenic festivities in honour of Virgin Mary on August 15 are accompanied by other festivals like those in Tsikniás and Exómbourgo and the gastronomic feasts involving artichoke and raki in Falatádos as well as the festival of honey in Kámpos. Tinos is the ideal place for nature lovers, architecture, art and tradition, and the perfect answer to the relative expectations.

Virtute tibique ad sit. Cu nam dolorum honestatis, ei accusamus disputationi sit, ferri feugiat in vis. Cum soleat posidonium et, mazim evertitur comprehensam ea eam.
