Evangelistria Church Panagia of TinosLeof. Megalocharis, Tinos 842 00, Greece
The Holy Church of She of Great Grace was founded in the exact spot where the miraculous icon of Panagia was found. Panagia came three times in Agia Pelagia’ s sleep asking her to organize excavation so as to renovate her church which was buried in Antonios Doxaras’ field in Chora. The miraculous icon of Evangelismos was revealed in January 30th of 1823 when the pickaxe of the worker Dimitres Vlassis from Falatados hit on it and cut it in two leaving the figures of the Angel and Panagia untouchable.
The reconstruction of the Holy Church of Evangelistria was complete in 1880 and since then, innumerable worshippers from all around Greece swarm here in order to worship the miraculous icon of Evangelismos which covered by countless oblations.
Under the main church, in the one of Zoodochos-Pigi-Evreseos, you may get holy water from the spring as well as dirt from the spot where the icon was revealed. The National Holy Foundation of Evangelistria in Tinos also includes museums, offices and other services.
