Tour Description

Leaving early in the morning from our office for the port of Rafina, where we will board (07:30) the ferry and sail to the port of beautiful Tinos island. We arrive in Tinos at 11:05 and start our tour with a visit to the Assumption Monastery of Kehrovouuni (Agia Pelagia), which was founded in the 9th century. It is a large building complex with many nuns, which includes several smaller churches and many auxiliary spaces.

The church is dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin, has a wood-carved iconostasis of exceptional art and beautiful frescoes. The simple cell is preserved, where the nun Pelagia lived (declared Saint in 1970), to whose vision the icon of Megalocharis of Tinos was found. Our next stop is the Holy Church of Evangelistria of Panagia. The Church of Panagia of Tinos was built where the miraculous icon of Panagia was found, after a vision of the nun Pelagia on 30-1-1823 and is considered the work of Evangelist Loukas. The church has been built on the foundations of an early Christian church, which was dedicated to Saint John. After our pilgrimage we enjoy our free time in the Chora market for shopping and strolling. In the afternoon (17:00) we depart to Rafina. Arrival in Rafina (21:00) and transfer by coach to our office.
