Culture/ Tradition
History of the island
Tinos Island was named after its first settler, Tinos. In ancient times it was called “Ofiousa” or “Hydrousa”, due to the large amount of snakes and the abundance of running water all around the island.
The ancient god Poseidon was the patron of the island, while on the highest mountain of the island Tsiknias, was the home of Aeolos, the god of winds. When the island belonged to the Athenians the Pisistratio Aqueduct was constructed for the chora of the island.
From 1207 until 1715 Venetians conquered Tinos, a fact that explains Catholicism on the island. In 1715 Tinos was occupied by Turks, but took part in the revolution of 1821 against them from the beginning of this national revolution. On the 30th of January 1823 the icon of Virgin Mary was found and became a religious symbol for the nation.
Many fighters devoted their victories against the tyrants to the grace of this icon. In the 15th of August 1940 the torpedo that ruined the ship Elli in the harbor of Tinos signals the war with Italy and connects again Tinos to the history of the Greek Nation.
Art History of the island
In Tinos lived some very important sculptors and painters such as, G. Chalepas, N. Gizis, N. Lytras, D. Filippotis, Brothers Fytali, but there are also contemporary artists too, such as Iannis and Manthos Gaitis, G. Retzepopoulos, Christos Santamouris, Babis Kritikos, Richardos Foskolos and others.
Tradition
During the whole year and especially during Easter and summer time festivities in the outlying chapels of the island and in the villages express the tradition and hospitality of the locals in a very unique way involving religion and tasty delicacies. Easter time is a wonderful period for the island since nature is blooming and local traditions and delicacies create a very special atmosphere on the island. Also the 15th of August is a very special religious day for the island where nationally is celebrated the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary.
