Tinos’ once consisted of countless footpaths, in order to achieve communication and transport. The rural roads of Tinos’ citizens, now formed into accessible hiking trails, date back thousands of years. Handmade constructed through the help, mostly of horses and donkeys, used to connect “central cities” (ἄστυ) to harbors, rural areas, villages, any type of mill and religious centers.
Although they were mainly man-made, (Tinos is known as the handmade island), sometimes nature gave us geological masterpieces. Nowadays, through the rise and development of ecotourism, these paths are capable of revealing their cultural and aesthetic worth, since they are now accessible to everyone.
