Sklavochorio village, Tinos: “Being a slave (=sklavos) to free thinking”

Sklavochorio is a small mountain village in the east of Krokos.

Reflections on the origin of the name differ: According to the first theory, it comes from “slaves” (sklavous) who escaped from the Turks and took refuge in the village, while the second one refers to “Slavs” settlers.

The view from the village of the north side of Tinos and of Agapi village is unique.

Sklavochorio was the hometown of the great Greek painter Nikolaos Gyzis. The house, where he lived, is open to visitors and it is a landmark of the village.

It is the only purely orthodox village in the interior of the island. Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) is the church of the village.

The well-preserved traditional “laundry room” was built in 1821.
