at the starting point of Tinos Local Bus Station (50 m from Tinos port - see the pin on

village,which is situated in the heart of Tinos and it is built in a beautiful
lunar landscape. Many of its inhabitants weave baskets. (20′ stop)

picturesque village of Pirgos, birthplace of famous artists, painters and
sculptors. Here you can visit the house where the world known sculptor
Giannoulis Halepas lived but also the Museum of Tinian Artists. For those who do
not wish to visit the museums we recommend a drink at one of the cafes at the
beautiful square of the village under the plane tree. (1 hour stop)

the nearby settlement of Panormos where you can enjoy the beach and greek dishes
at one of the taverns. ( Stop for 1 hour and 50′. )
