Aetofolia village, Tinos: “Eagles or Ceramic’s nest?”

The name of the village Aetofolia comes from the place where it is located, since it is like a nest built
high in the mountains.

After the settlement of artists from Sifnos (Cyclades), it became a center of pottery.

The Church of Ag. Ioannni, which dominates in the village, was built in 1819.

In the village, there is a Museum of Traditional Pottery and Folk Art.

The surrounding areas “Tis Koris o Pyrgos”, “Ellinikaria”, “Kammeni Spilia” beyond their
physical beauty, are associated with various versions of folk legends.

According to tradition, in “Kori’s Pyrgos” lived Persephone, daughter of Demeter, the mythic godess.
