Instantly, as you climb the stairs to this cathedral, or watch others climb up on their bellys on the red carpets leading to this holy site, you get a glimpse of the Greek Orthodox religion. Most Americans are unfamiliar with the Greek Orthodox religion, so this is a religious education in a heartbeat. No pictures are allowed to be taken... More

“The Church gives hope and miracles to the sick, as well as hope to the Greek Nation during their fight for freedom in 1821. A dream come true for me. Why? For one hundred years, every generation of my family would say this church is the #1 place to visit. It has the most miraculous icon in the Greek Orthodox... More

We went on a Sunday around 5 pm. Lite candles to our departed loved ones then sat down in wonder as what was going on around us. People coming and going, 4 priests chanting...so moving. We saw people crawling up the carpet into the church...very emotional and I am not religious.

This was well worth a visit. I went on a Sunday and had to queue for a long time just to enter it. Probably best to go on another day n the week and not on a religious festival day. The views from the outer areas are fantastic as well.

The original chapels built directly over the discovery site are on the first floor and the cathedral is on the second floor. This cathedral is considered a holy place and a pilgrimage site... More

I was unaware of the history of the cathedral. When I saw the carpet along the paving leading up to the Cathedral I can only imagine the moving spectacle of the pilgrims painstakingly crawling up the hill on the two feast days every year. There was a young lady making the pilgrimage on the day of my visit, and it... More

Our introduction to Tinos was with a local guide, Nikko. Tinos is not like many other islands, in that they young people actually stay on the island, taking over family businesses and maintaining their strong family bonds. It’s the home of the Monastery of Lady of the Angels, and it has many Catholics as well as Greek Orthodox villages. The... More
