Aegeanale is an international platform of art and culture created in 2012. Its fundamental goals is to highlight the Aegean as region of inspiration, creativity and intercultural dialogue as also to map once more, the archipelago as a complex of destinations with cultural interest.
Aegeanale’s program is constructed upon two different focus points:
The first focus point concerns a series of international artistic projects from the contemporary art scene, which travels in several locations of the Aegean Sea, constructing tourist routes of cultural interest.
The second focus point concerns a visual arts residency program in several islands of the Aegean, transforming the region to a unique “open-air gallery”.
The summer of 2013 has been selected as the starting point of the first strategic initiative while the residency program is scheduled to be inaugurated within the period spring-summer of
Aegeanale, through its program and its multi-sectoral partnerships with Greek and international collaborators, attempts to create a dynamic network in order to foster cultural tourism throughout the Aegean.
Aegeanale’s vision is to offer essential opportunities for the promotion of the uniqueness and the potentials of the archipelago, which features extraordinary circumstances for inspiration, creativity and intercultural dialogue.
In a manner of speaking, Aegeanale aims to trigger a new form of mobility throughout the Aegean Sea which will have as a starting point art and culture.

Like most of the Cycladic Islands, Tinos has a pleasant climate with sunshine throughout the year.
Autumn is warm and pleasant.
Average temperatures vary from 16-28 °C, whilst on average it is sunny for 25 days in a month. This weather is ideal for athletic activities, village hopping, attending cultural events and still good for swimming. Grapes are ready to be harvested so take the chance to attend a wine tour or festival at one of the local wineries.
Winter on Tinos Island is mild
snow is very rare, the temperature almost never falls below freezing and sometimes there are gentle mists. Experience trekking on the impressive mountains or socialize in a warm atmosphere near the fireplace in a village tavern, together with other travellers, locals or photographers that visit the island during the winter. On average it is sunny for around 18 days in a month, so what could be more perfect than to enjoy a lunch barbequed under the sunshine on your veranda in the heart of the winter…
Spring represents the peak of beauty in Cyclades
full of flowers and aromas along with magnificent scenery. Love is in the air, so it is an ideal time to visit us and enjoy the particular silence and beauty of the island. As it is warm enough but not too hot, you can attempt your first swim in the sea, attend gastronomy courses, visit cheese making farms or even attend a Yoga class by the pool in Diles & Rinies. Spring is also ideal for family reunions. Average temperatures are between 16-28 °C, days are long, whilst on average it is sunny for 27 days in a month.
Summer is hot
but the north wind, blowing across the Aegean Sea (known as ‘Meltemi’ in Greek) offers a relief. Lowering the high temperatures, the ‘Meltemi’ makes the climate of Tinos particularly healthy, as it is associated with dry weather, clear skies, a drop in humidity, improved visibility and a rise in atmospheric pressure. After sunset, in the mountains it can become chilly.
