A visit to Tinos has become something of a pilgrimage, a virtual act of faith, for anyone staying in Mykonos. This island, some 45 minutes away by ferry, is home to one of the most famous and sacred churches in Greece, the Panagia Evangelistria, an awe-inspiring shrine atop a hill dominating Tinos town. The Renaissance-style church was built where a nun found an icon buried at a spot revealed by the Virgin Mary. Since then, the icon and church, and even town itself, have been associated with miracles and wondrous deeds.
The iconic shrine is the first stop of the Tinos Tour, which then heads to the quaint, whitewashed monastery of Kechrovouni, before continuing on to the majestic mountain of Exomvourgo, with its castle ruins at the summit. Then were off to the gorgeous little hamlet of Volax, famous for its traditional basket makers, where we will stop for a break.
We will then head back towards the coast, to Panormos. Here, too, we will stop for a rest, with guests free to roam the streets of this fishing village located in a crescent-shaped bay.
The final stop is the marble-producing hilltop village of Pyrgos, which is dominated by a striking double-fronted church.
From there, it will be on to Tinos, where we will have some free time before we catch the ferry back to Mykonos, arriving at about 10.15 pm.
