The Greek island of Koufonisia is located in the Cyclades group of islands and forms part of the municipality of Naxos and Lesser Cyclades. The island lies to the south east of the island of Naxos and to the west of the island of Amorgos. Koufonisia is actually made up of three different islands: Kato (Lower) and Pano (Upper) Koufonisi and Keros which is uninhabited and is a protected archaeological site. Artefacts found on Keros during the 20th century include a large number of Cycladic pieces of art. Also uninhabited is Kato Koufonisia which is next to Pano Koufonisia, Shoinousa and Keros. Pano Koufonisi is the smallest and most densely populated island of the Cycladic island group. The small church of Panagia which has been built on a jetty above ancient ruins is perhaps the most popular sight on the island. The island's port is mainly used by tourist boats and fishing vessels. Visitors to the island are greeted by a white windmill which is located on the east side of the port. The main town on the island is Chora which is on the south west coast of the island and has many houses of typical Cycladic architecture.
The Greek island of Tinos is located in the north of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea. It is a perfect island destination for a relaxing family vacation where its beaches are sandy, with calm waters, and are surrounded by a good selection of tourist facilities and accommodation. The island's most traditional villages are located inland and are famous for their picturesque architecture and charm. The island's most characteristic village, with its long tradition of marble carving, is the village of Pyrgos. Tinos has a special place in the hearts of Greeks as it is the home of the Church of Panagia, which is considered to be the protector of the country, and contains a miraculous icon inside. The church receives thousands of pilgrims all year round, particularly on the 15th of August.
Tinos is connected by boat to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina and also to the islands of Andros, Syros and Mykonos, and to almost all of the Cycladic islands.
