Tinos

Tinos is close to Mykonos is another pretty little Cycladic island, Tinos, with characteristic buildings of popular architecture, dovecots which are truly works of art. Its chief attraction,though, is the white marble Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation, the Lourdes of Greece. Near the Church are a picture gallery with works by Tinian painters and an archaeological museum with finds from the ancient temple of Amphitriti and Poseidon and from chance discoveries all over the island. The dove is the symbol of peace and the Cycladic dovecote of an inimitable folk architecture.
