"The best "balcony" on the Aegean-KARDIANI!" Tinos Island Things to Do Tip by INSULARIUS

Tinos Island Things to Do: 73 reviews and 162 photos

Believe it or not, the next thing equivalent to Fira (Santorini), is the village of KARDIANI in Tinos!

Built on a wonderful location, facing from up high the Aegean Sea and on the opposite side the island of Syros, Kardiani does not match to the other islands of the Cyclades, because it is a "green village".Big trees, like platan trees and many other trees, cover with their shadow the whole village, when, at the same time, running water fills the numerous fountains!

From the religious point of view, the island is mixed: half Catholic, half Orthodox.Despite this fact, the Catholic influence is more obvious.
The "jewel" of Kardiani is the (Catholic) church of Panaghia Kioura-Our Lady-the first big church you encounter, entering the village.There are two more churches: the "Santissimo", a Catholic one and Aghia Triada (Holy Trinity), an Orthodox one.
