Tinos Town

Information about Town

Tinos Town: Tinos Town (Chora) is the capital and main harbour of the island. This settlement has had a rapid development over the past few decades. The discovery of the miraculous icon of the Virgin was the most important factor for the development of the town.

Today the largest part of the population of Tinos lives in Hora whereas most of the tourist activity is also concentrated there. Two main roads lead to the Church of Panagia or the Church of Evangelismos Theotokou which overlooks the town and where the miracle-working icon of the Virgin Mary is.

The newest of those roads is called Megaloharis Avenue and is where the City Hall and the Archaeological Museum of Tinos are located. Evangelistrias Street, the oldest main street, is stone paved and has a beautiful 18th century marble fountain with impressive carvings as well as many art galleries exposing the works of local painters.

This street has many shops, one next to another, that form a market lane of colourful products, souvenirs and everything one can imagine. The new white apartment buildings and three or four-storey houses are well combined with the traditional old houses and the narrow alleys and flowered courtyards, keeping a Cycladic touch that makes the town attractive.

Being the island's capital, Hora has many restaurants, taverns, pastry shops, tourist stores, cafes, bars, camping sites and hotels: Here the visitor can find everything that might help him enjoy his stay on the island even more.
