Monastiria in Tinos

I'm childishly fond of abandoned villages. My favourite is Mikro Chorio on Tilos (in the Dodecanese islands) which was abandoned in the 1950s. Monastiria on Tinos is not as big as Mikro Chorio, but it is just as abandoned.

I do not know when the village was abandoned, nor do I know why. What I do know is that it's incredibly fascinating to walk around in the abandoned village and imagine how life once took place in the village.

 

Abandoned village of Monastiria in Tinos.

It was probably a pretty village once upon a time.


Unfortunately an artist used the village as an art installation a few years ago. He put up mirrors in the houses, which I understand would strengthen the feeling of abandonment. The mirrors remain, many of them are cracked and there is mirror glass here and there. Nevertheless, I think Monastiria is worth a visit.

This abandoned and captivating village lies between the villages of Krokos and Komi, which in turn is quite close to the love village of Agapi.
