Tinos, the third largest of the Cyclades Group of Islands, is located very near to Syros, Mykonos and Andros. It is “the island of Faith and the Arts”.

The discovery of the miracle-performing icon of Panagia Evangelistria (Our Lady of Annunciation), following the vision of Sister Pelagia, transformed the island into the most venerable pilgrimage of Hellenism, the land where the faithful experienced their contact with God and His Holy Mother. Each year thousands gather faithful to make a pilgrimage to Her Icon, which is housed in the tremendously interesting Church dedicated to Her.

Tinos was also a major marble sculpturing center in Greece. A multitude of anonymous masters, mainly marble workers, as well as builders, woodcarvers, sacred icon painters and others, have left their mark on the chapels, houses, dovecotes. The flourishing of marble sculpting bore masters such as Halepas, Philippotis, Vitalis and Sohos, painters such as Gyzis, Lytras and many other important artists. It is therefore no wonder that Tinos is considered to be the cradle of contemporary Greek art.
