Tarabados on Tinos

Tarabados is something of a Garden of Eden, and perhaps the most beautiful spot on Tinos. It is an idyllic oasis of greenery and silence. Here are more dovecotes than anywhere else on the island. The overwhelming beautiful scenery, the majestic dovecotes and the picturesque village makes the area of Tarabados one of the most scenic on the island.

Alleys in Tarabados. Tinos. Greece.

One of the few alleys in Tarabados.

 

The village is very old, small narrow arch adorned alleys lined with ruins and aged stone houses. To get to the dovecotes you go through the whole village - it does not take many minutes - and continue along a path leading to an old stone bridge, a small brook purls under the bridge. In the spring, you are met by an emerald green scenery with lush flowers.

One thing that strikes you after a visit to Tarabados is that there are no souvenir shops in the village. Certainly, there is no shops at all in Tarabados, but that the villagers do not make capital of the dovecotes is strange. Someone should have come up with the brilliant idea to start selling miniature dovecotes or dove key rings.

 

Tarabados. Tinos. Greece.

Tarabados is dominated by Greek everyday life. No souvenir shops here!

 

If Tarabados was on another Greek island, like Santorini for example, it would not be able to walk far without passing a souvenir shop selling dovecotes. Thank you dear villagers of Tarabados for this relief.

 

Hiking on Tinos in the spring is not to be missed.
