This is the most traditional village of Tinos. It is located at a height of 280 m, 3 km from the northern region of Exobourgo. As it is built on different levels, it has a character all of its own. The village owes its name to a few white houses hewn into the surrounding rocks. There is also a small beautiful theatre carved out of the hill with a capacity of 400 persons, where, during the summer, cultural activities are organised.

At the highest mountain of Tinos (640m) is the location the Venetians chose for their castle in 1207. They surrounded this stronghold by two enormous buttress-walls. It is the most strategic spot on the island. In 1901, a huge marble cross was erected on its summit. The cross was destroyed in 1915, and restored in 1931.
