Travelling to the Destination Tinos
Tinos is located between Syros, Andros and Mykonos. It is also a religious centre of Greece and is therefore mainly visited be Greek pilgrims. Tinos can be compared to Lourdes in France regarding its status as a pilgrimage site. Not very far from the port and reachable on a steep but wide road, placed on a hill, stands the church of Our Lady Tinos (Panagia Evangelistria). A red carpet leads to the entrance of the church. Pilgrims use the carpet to make their way from the ferry wharf to the church on their hands and knees as a sign of devotion. However, the faithful visitors of the church do not stay on the island for long. They usually return the same day and hence miss the beauties that the island has to offer.
