Tinos town (chora)

The first impression, when arriving at Tinos, is maybe not what you did expect, but be sure Tinos town holds well-kept secrets.

While wandering in the alleys the visitor will discover arches, old mansions and churches, villas with large gardens,  cobblestone paths and houses with blazons, all showing the urban development of the town in the period between the 18th and 19th century and proving a past economic and social prosperity.

Worth to visit are the several museums, the Cultural fondation of Tinos, and ofcourse the  Megalochari (Church of Virgin Mary).
