The word “Agapi” means “Love” and the village is named after its trademark the Catholic church of St. Agapitos. One of the oldest villages in Tinos, Agapi is a traditional settlement with stone houses, narrow alleys and impressive archways.
It is built on the slopes of a hill, next to a verdurous gorge with a large number of dovecots scattered out on its river banks. The view when approaching the village is truly astonishing.
One of the less touristic settlements, Agapi is somewhat of a hidden gem, waiting to be discovered by those willing to explore Tinos beyond the obvious, well-known landmarks.
