The islands of Greece are famous for beaches and entertainment, but this does not mean that they lag behind in culture and monuments. Here you can see information about all the points of cultural interest of Tinos.

Temple of Poseidon and Amphitrite

In Kionia and at a distance of 3 km from the city of Tinos, next to the sea, is the sanctuary of Poseidon and Amphitrite! More specifically, the only sanctuary dedicated to the gods of the sea in all the Cyclades, which also functioned as a healing center.

The Archaeological Museum of Tinos is located on Megalochari Avenue, just 100m. from the holy church of Panagia. It includes rare finds, such as a multitude of sculptures and vases as well as the marble sundial of Andronikos from Kyristos, which date from the Mycenaean era to Roman times!

Museum of the Ursulines in Loutra

In 1862, the famous Ursuline monastery was founded in the village of Loutra, which made a decisive contribution to the upgrading of education, gathering female students from all over Greece!

There, you are given the opportunity to visit the chapel, but also of course to admire a multitude of exhibits, such as everyday objects of the time, books, musical instruments, looms and even entire workshops.
