OF THE GROUND
In Tinos there is plenty
of slate, marble and granite. As far as the marble is concerned,
are in large quantities in the region “ Pateles”, near the villages
of Ysternia and Pyrgos and that’ s why those villages have developed
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).
