Tinos is a pilgrim island to many Greeks. Every year thousands of people flock the church of Panagia Evagelistria (Church of Anunciation) to venerate the icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary that is believed to have healing powers. The bi-annual pilgrimage is held on March 25 and August 15. People from different parts of the country pay homage to the church to seek comfort and fulfill their vows. Interestingly, Tinos is an important center of worship for two different Christian traditions: Catholic and Orthodox. This rare blend of religious traditions makes the island unique.
