I came back to Tinos after 19 years. We chose to baptize our son at this church. The temple is still very popular with a lot of visitors all year with a long history!

Beautiful church on a hill in the very center Tinos town. Architecture is really nice plus the surrounding area also makes it worth to climb a bit to get there. Worth a visit!
