Tinos Island Things to Do: 73 reviews and 162 photos
One of the biggest villages of Tinos, Komi is situated at the beginning of a fertile plain that stretches down to the sea.There are two entrances to the village, each one being marked by the presence of a big (Catholic) church.We should not forget that the village of Komi is one of the "strongholds" of the "Tinian Catholicism"!
The first church and one of the biggest Catholic churches in Tinos, is dedicated to the "Decapitation" (beheading) of Saint John the Baptist.On the main altar, there is a valuable treasure of the local religious art: a painting by the Jesuit painter, Antonio Gagliardi, depicting the beheading of Saint John the Baptist.At the courtyard of the church, a prechristian period marble column 2 metres heigh, is kept.
The other church is dedicated to the "Holy Name of Mary".
Do not leave the village, without paying a visit to the nice restaurant, called: "Garage".
