The Aegean Muse
Time to spread your wings with a special muse, the Aegean island of Tinos. Carpets of golden sands lace the coasts and spring waters create oases between its rugged mountainsides. The locals work with such zeal to honour their little paradise that every village is a masterpiece, with a genuinely warm welcome awaiting you in each. Their pathways will spur you to pull on your walking boots and even take on the peaks. The friendly winds will invite you to join in the fun on the waves. From the flora and fauna, the people have created a rich gastronomy. From their marble they have carved out a legacy of statues and a distinctive architectural style, crowned by the glorious Church of The Holy Virgin. The land was adorned with decorative dovecots, churches, temples, colourful bell towers, wind and watermills as a token of generous appreciation to the seeds of inspiration this blessed island offers so genuinely.
Enjoy a natural treasure trove of artistic delights.
Stand aloft the rock of Exombourgo and feel the elemental energy of sea, sky and mountain that has inspired a creative urge in the people of Tinos for generations. Legend says that the greatest sculptor of all time, Phideas, lent a hand by passing on his genius and today the chisel is still wielded with the very same flair. See for yourself in the Chalepas Museum and the fascinating Marble School. Elsewhere, basket weavers spin out folk tales along with strands of wicker; and painters ponder the mystery of the Volax boulders. You’ll soar to a personal epiphany, carried away by this breathtaking landscape dotted with dovecotes and chapels and graced with the Church of The Holy Virgin, and you’ll join the other Tinos Festival goers in a celebration of theatre, dance and visual arts. Find the artist inside and craft the perfect holiday.
The paths of the island are stone or slate paved roads of 400km total length where you hardly meet any upright stones.
Their history goes back in the ancient times, when the named Vari – the most known and significant path till nowadays- connected Ancient Town to the Towns in the center of Tinos. However, the verification of the paths age is at some points quite difficult because the way of their construction remains the same and unaltered in the lapse of the centuries.
The program “Alternative Forms of Tourism – Promotion of Cultural Interest Itineraries” restored and marked trails in areas of great cultural interest.

The temple of Poseidon was considered equal to that of Asklepios in Epidaurus. Patients begged Poseidon to heal them. They participated in rituals and followed treatments given by the priests of the temple.
Tinos was the antechamber of the pilgrims to Delos. Pilgrims had to purify themselves in the baths of Poseidon in order to arrive immaculate to Delos. Today you can see parts of the foundations of the temples, the guesthouse and the bath, and a platform. Among the findings there are several sculptures and decorations of the temple which testify its glory.
