Tinos Isternia Village
Isternia Tinos: Isternia is a picturesque village located 20 km from the main town of Tinos and close to Kardiani village. Built amphitheatrically on a beautiful natural site, on the slopes of Mount Meroviglia, Isternia is a small settlement with marble-paved lanes, two-storey houses as well as fine marble lintels and picturesque arches shadowing the narrow paths. The entire village is an exquisite example of fine marble sculpture.
It is worth mentioning that Ysternia is the birth place of many famous Greek sculptors like Vitalis, Latena and Sochou. For them and many others the village has founded the Museum of Isternian Artists where works and biographies of the artists are displayed.
North of the village is Mylon which has remarkable and interesting ruined windmills which are listed traditional buildings. A beautiful old marble-paved road connects Isternia with the wonderful sandy beach called the Isternia Bay. The village offers a magnificent view of the neighbouring Syros and a wonderful panoramic view of the Aegean.
