Being the middle ring in the island chain (along with Andros and Mykonos) delimiting the nothern border of Cyclades, Tinos composes along with its adjacent above mentioned islands and Syros a distinct, not only geographic, but also social, historical and cultural unity. The island is quite large (194 sq. km) and has a mountainous relief: the highest point reaches at 727 m, at the peak of Tsiknias, an oblong massif forming the SE ending of the island. An other prominent point is Exombourgo, a granite outcrop rising in the middle of the island backbone.
