In Pallada Street, there is something for every taste and budget, from kitsch to antique. Shop hours vary during the winter, but most shops and stalls are open continuously throughout the day during the summer, from about 09:00 until well after Midnight. Visitors could usually find the island`s mascot, Markos the Pelican, wandering through the Pallada street, waiting to have a photo taken.
Saint Pelagia of Tinos, a Greek Nun saint, the one that has helped- through her visions- the discovery of the sacred icon of Panagia of Tinos. This icon is one of the most sacred, venerated icons of the Holy Mother, all over Greece and, maybe the most famous pilgrimage that is dedicated to Her Grace, each year on the feast of Her Dormition on August, 15th.
“Godfather” of the rather leeward large sandy shore at the southern part of Tinos (11km away from Chora) was the chapel of the left side of the bay. Nature has endowed the beloved of the Tinians with shady trees, crystal clear, emerald waters and unobstructed sight of Syros.
