Tinos Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Tinos lies in the Aegean Sea and is situated close to the islands of Andros, Delos and Mykonos. Originally named Opiussa and Hydroessa in ancient times, the island is home to the Church of Virgin Mary, or Evangelistria Church, at Hora which is one of the grandest churches in the whole of Greece. The church was built on the site where the Orthodox Image of the Virgin Mary was found, following a vision by nun Pelagia, between 1823 and 1831. Of traditional architectural style, the spacious church has many arches and is made up of two floors with many other smaller buildings in its courtyard. Another popular attraction on the island is the Monastery of the Lady of the Angels at Kechrovouni which was built after three sisters had the same vision of the Virgin Mary telling them to build a monastery at a specific location at Kechrovouni, where they saw a strange light.

Tinos is connected by boat to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina and also to the islands of Andros, Syros and Mykonos, and to almost all of the Cycladic islands.

Lavrio Guide

Lavrio is a town and port located at the tip of the Attiki Peninsular and is not that popular with visitors as it doesn't seem to be mentioned very much in guidebooks about Greece. This is surprising especially given that it is home to the oldest and largest ancient amphitheatre in the country and also to a giant hole that would be popular to visitors who enjoy unexplained phenomena. In ancient times the town was known for its mining and industry and in fact the large columns from the temple of Posideon at nearby Sounion were mined in the town. There are also silver mines in the town that date back to prehistoric times.

Although the town's port is less important than the Port of Piraeus, it still plays an important role in the development of the region. The port can accommodate passenger ferries, commercial boats, fishing boats and yachts and is the perfect port of departure for passenger ferries departing to the Cyclades and to islands in the eastern Aegean.
