Platia village, Tinos: “Widely (=platia) known for its tradition in marble art” 

Platia village is a small preserved village near Pyrgos.

First reports of the existence of the village date back to the 17th century.

On September 8 (Nativity of Mary) a feast takes place and all the villagers make preparations for it, welcoming and treating a lot of visitors, every year.

Next to the church (Birthday of Mary) there is a small ecclesiastical museum.
