Exobourgos in Tinos

If you feel like climbing a mountain, you can make a visit to the top of the giant rock of Exobourgos north of Tinos town. Up here, at an height above sea level of 559 meters, lies an ancient fortress which was built by the Venetians. There is not much left of the fortress, almost all the buildings are in ruins, but you still get an understanding of how it once looked liked.

The question is, how on earth did they manage the feat to even build something up here. The first thought I had was that there must have been as difficult as building the pyramids.

The view from the top on a clear day is impressive. Tinos' villages looks like popcorn, and overlooking the sea you see many of the islands in the Cyclades.

If you are not so keen on the idea of climbing up on the top, you can be content with studying the fortress from a distance. Exobourgos is namely seen from large parts of the island and is a good landmark if you should happen to get lost.
