THE MORPHOLOGY OF THE GROUND

In Tinos there is plenty of slate, marble and granite. As far as the marble is concerned, there are in large quantities in the region “ Pateles”, near the villages of Ysternia and Pyrgos and that’ s why those villages have developed the sculpture in such a way.
The ground, in some places, is rocky and barren while in other places it is not. Even thought Tinos is one of the Cycladic islands, it has rich vegetation, especially in some villages, such as Komi. The highest mountain of Tinos is Tsiknias ( 1713 m). Apart from Tsiknias, Tinos has three other mountains, Muroviglia ( 649 m), Kehrovouni ( 604 m) and Ksompourgo ( 558 m).
