near Tínos, South Aegean (Greece)
Start on ring road. Walk the old paved trail (Βαρύς), via the abandoned inn (κυρά Ξένη). Keep on the main trail, ignore the trail to the left going to Ktikados. Cross the main road near Tripotamos (next to Chalaris bakery) and continue the steep trail to Xinara passing by the old mills. This part is overgrown and hard to cross. From Xinara up to the old cemetery under the rock of Xombourgo,continue for a few hundred meters through some very overgrown fields to the church fence.You need to jump the fence and watch out for snakes. Take the trail uphill to the catholic monastery of the sacred heart. The old castle & the top of the rock is another 10' uphill. Return downhill, small detour to visit Tripotamos and back. The north wind is an issue in August.
